T20 side event webinar on 'Emerging Economies towards Net Zero Emission: Challenges and Opportunities on Technology Innovation and Financing'
The 2022 G20 Indonesia Presidency’s Energy Transition pillar of ‘Global cleaner energy systems and just transitions’ aims at achieving a global deal to accelerate the energy transition. G20 Indonesia Presidency has opted, therefore, for its pathway to achieve the carbon neutrality target by accelerating the just process of reducing energy-related greenhouse gas emissions through various forms of decarbonisation. Such decarbonisation means an additional investment is necessary. Nevertheless, the question remains: how to finance the energy transition, especially in the context of reaching carbon neutrality pledges that vary across G20 countries?
Apart from traditional financial and policy instruments, countries need also to fully employ new and innovative schemes to support clean energy financing and markets. This virtual workshop aims to explore workable financing mechanisms in each technology cluster (including renewable energy resources and their carriers, CCS/CCUS, and Direct Air Capture technologies) that play important roles in the energy transition with an emphasis on the ASEAN countries.
This Virtual Workshop is jointly organised by the Institute of Economic and Social Research Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Indonesia (LPEM-FEB UI) and Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA).
