Looking Forward: A Multidimensional Energy Transition
The energy crisis over the past two years has demonstrated that the energy transition is more complicated than previously thought. Expectations of a linear global transition have been shaken as climate goals compete with priorities of energy security, access, and affordability. The 2023 Global Energy Solutions Initiative report outlines the need for a "multidimensional" approach to energy transition that is inclusive of different situations around the world, reflecting varied starting points, diversity of policy approaches and is equitable. What are the differentiated responsibilities of developing and developed countries for energy transition, how will the future energy mix evolve and what is necessary to accelerate deployment of clean energy technologies?
