On the occasion of the German G20 Presidency’s joint G20 and third-party expert workshop, we intend to provide a continuous platform for networking and discussion among energy research institutes and think tanks from G20 countries and beyond.
Driven by decreasing technology costs, climate policies, environmental concerns and growing thirst for energy, energy systems around the world have entered into a transition. These transition processes take place against specific economic, political and cultural backgrounds and therefore need to be understood and managed in the respective national context. However, similar challenges exist in all countries, e.g. regarding the regulatory framework, infrastructure and cost-efficiency.
The aim of this workshop was to identify these common challenges and solutions for energy systems in transition. The scope comprises all sectors, i.e. electricity, buildings, transport, and industry. Interventions shall address innovative regulatory frameworks, enhancing investor certainty and the role of financial sector, structural change and socio-economic aspects, as well as the impacts of the digital revolution.
The programme may be found in the media section at the bottom of this website. Presentations will be available for download soon.
Thank you for your participation as well as the interesting discussions. Please note, this was an invitation-only event.
