14 November 2022
Denmark Pavilion, P91, Delegation Pavilion 4, Area C,Blue Zone
A just transition for the oil and gas sector is the next frontier for climate mitigation. The IEA warned that achieving 1.5°C requires making 2020 a decade of massive clean energy expansion and investment globally. Speakers at this event considered:
What are the key factors that make it possible for a country to set a course towards an oil and gas production phase-out?
How does exposure to climate change impacts and/or geopolitical risks influence a country’s propensity to restrict fossil fuel supply?
How does the connection between a country’s fossil fuel supply and demand come into play?
How could international collaboration best be organized?
