Event - Chatham House Energy Transitions Conference 2023 (1-2 March)
Aligning the need for energy security with global decarbonization targets has become paramount. Affordability and fair access to services such as lighting, cooking, and mobility has become a pressing political concern in many high-income countries alongside increasing debt distress amongst less wealthy fuel importers. At the same time, investment is in flux as many countries try to decrease dependency on Russian imports and protect their economies from price volatility.
Responding to this evolving situation creates new challenges and avenues for technological developments, innovative financing models and coordinated action between all stakeholders at both international and local levels. Such a response also involves managing our dependency on critical minerals that underpin the deployment of renewable technologies and improving energy efficiency in the built environment.
The 2023 Energy Transitions conference explores what pathways to a secure and sustainable net-zero future look like in practice and the collaborative action required to unleash transformation at scale.
