This Thematic Session by the Ministry of Trade Industry and Energy themed “A Greener Planet with Innovative Energy Solutions” aims to discuss low-carbon energy solutions for greener earth to future generations with energy exports and P4G countries.Energy is by far the most important element in achieving carbon neutrality. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the energy sector accounts for two-thirds of the global carbon emissions. Therefore, without achieving carbon neutrality in the energy sector, it will be impossible to create a carbon-neutral world.However, carbon neutrality including the energy sector is a very challenging task at the current level of technology, and it will be very difficult for countries to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 with their own efforts. Cooperation through multilateral platforms, such as P4G, is the key to accelerating our journey towards carbon neutrality so that we can leverage the different levels of technology and policy experiences of individual countries.
In this back ground, keynote speech of the Energy Session will present the role of energy for carbon neutrality, the future of the energy industry and Carbon-neutral Energy with Inclusive Growth.
In the panel discussion we will discuss the topic of “The energy system transformation strategy for achieving carbon neutrality.” First we would like to introduce innovation and transformation of energy companies in the age of carbon neutrality. And we will be discussing the policy direction for reaching a carbon neutrality and sustainable growth. Lastly, we would like to talk about various ways to promote international cooperation for carbon neutrality.
