Friday 29 March at 10:30 AM to 11:45 AM at German House, 871 United Nations Plaza.
The Permanent Missions of Germany, Norway and the UAE to the United Nations together with IRENA and UN DESA invite you to a presentation of the report of
The Global Commission on the Geopolitics of the Energy Transformation
The ongoing global transition to sustainable energy sources does not just represent a shift from one energy source to another. It entails a much far-reaching transformation of the world’s energy systems that will have major social, economic and political implications, as well as wide-ranging geopolitical consequences.
In response, IRENA established the Global Commission on the Geopolitics of the Energy Transformation with the support of the Governments of Germany, Norway and the United Arab Emirates. Composed of prominent leaders from different geographical and professional backgrounds in the fields of energy, politics, international affairs, economics, trade and development, the Global Commission examined how the energy transformation will reshape power relations, promote new patters of trade and address root causes of geopolitical instability. Its recently launched report, A New World: The Geopolitics of the Energy Transformation, highlights how the shift to renewables will enable many countries to achieve greater energy independence and enhance their development and security.
When: Friday 29 March at 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM.
Where: German House, 871 United Nations Plaza.
