Sustainable Energy


UNECE’s work on sustainable energy is designed to improve access to affordable and clean energy for all and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the carbon footprint of the energy sector in the region. It promotes international policy dialogue and cooperation among governments, energy industries and other stakeholders.  The focus  is on energy efficiency, cleaner electricity production from fossil fuels, renewable energy, coal mine methane, natural gas, classification of energy and mineral reserves and resources, and energy security.  Read more >

In focus

28th Session of the Committee on Sustainable Energy

The 2-degree Celsius commitment requires decarbonization in all economic sectors and of all potent greenhouse gases. This session allows to exchange views about some of the consequences of the ongoing energy transition for the UNECE region and how to accelerate further and deepen the transition to sustainable energy systems based on the inputs from its six subsidiary bodies.

The results from a preceding workshop on the "understanding of natural gas in achieving the 2030 Agenda" will inform discussions.
