24th Session of the Committee on Sustainable Energy

18 - 20 November 2015

Salle VII, Palais des Nations, Geneva

Under this year's theme of Pathways to Sustainable Energy, the 24th session of the Committee on Sustainable Energy offers the possibility to member States to review progress of the implementation of the programme of work 2014-2015 before discussing and endorsing the future programme of work 2016-2017 and the strategic framework of the UNECE sub-programme on sustainable energy 2018-2019. The focus of the meeting will therefore be on the Committee and its six subsidiary bodies on energy efficiency, cleaner electricity production, coal mine methane, gas, renewable energy and resource classification and how the work has been contributing to solutions sought by member States in sustainable energy. Five groups of experts also need to prepare their work plans for 2016-2017.

INTERNATIONAL HIGH-LEVEL PANEL (19 November)
An international high-level panel on 19 November 2015 will provide an occasion to explore what sustainable energy means for the UNECE region, both from the perspective of reducing the environmental footprint of energy and from the perspective of assuring needed energy for sustainable development.

Under the topic Pathways to Sustainable Energy the following questions are addressed:

  • How have countries defined sustainable energy?
  • How are countries integrating international developments into national energy policies?
  • Can we design a pathway to a sustainable energy system whereby a successful regional outcome is a composite of national choices?
  • Are we ambitious enough?
  • How can we track implementation and which are the proper indicators for progress?
  • What role could UNECE play in supporting countries?

The panel will be preceded by a presentation by Jason Channell from Citi Research on Energy Darwinism.

Please join us on 19 November at 15.00 in Salle VII.

GENEVA ENERGY CONVERSATIONS (17 November)
You are also invited to the third edition of Geneva Energy Conversations, preceding the event on 17 November 2015 on the Role of Fossil Fuels in Sustainable Energy Systems in the neighbouring Geneva Graduate Institute.

The outline for the 24th session can be found under this link. The detailed agenda is included in the document folder below.
