Many technical solutions and policy levers to address climate change sit at the nexus between energy supply and transport sectors. It is essential that there is strong collaboration between these sectors to align policies, overcome shared challenges, and forge coalitions to decarbonise both sectors in tandem. Reducing emissions from transport (23% of global CO2 emissions) implies a rapid shift from fossil energy to electricity and low-emission fuels, which will have a significant impact on global energy demand and supply chains.
Aligned with the slogan of the COP28 Presidency, “Unite, Act, Deliver”, this transport and energy ministerial roundtable will serve as a moment to “unite” two key sectors, and proceed with a strategic discussion on how to “act” together to “deliver” climate goals and leverage the benefits of an aligned transport and just energy transition.
