27th Session of the Committee on Sustainable Energy

26 - 27 September 2018

Salle XII, Palais des Nations, Geneva

Considering the fundamental role of energy to achieve the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, the UNECE Committee on Sustainable Energy will continue its dialogue on “Accelerating and deepening the transition to sustainable energy systems”.

Highlights of the agenda include a keynote address by the private sector about driving forces, critical uncertainties and unknowns with an influence on energy systems development. The keynote address will elude to global and regional energy challenges and stories on where the world is headed with an emphasis on innovative technologies, digitalization, and materials management. In a moderated discussion, the Committee will then be invited to share views about opportunities and limitations of emerging business models and technology innovation and to offer thoughts on disruptive factors, uncertainties and possibilities of response through the project it oversees on Pathways to Sustainable Energy.

The objective of the meeting is to receive guidance on the future direction of the Committee’s programme of work and to enhance opportunities for greater cooperation among the subsidiary bodies. This is especially important with regards to the opportunities and challenges of the fast-paced and unpredictable challenges of the ongoing energy transition.

You are also invited to participate in a series of adjacent events, to be held in Geneva in the same week:
