WEO Week: Sectoral transitions to new energy industries
cross

Our Energy Future: The Global Commission on People-Centred Clean Energy Transitions was established on 26 January 2021. The commission currently has 30 members and brings together government leaders, ministers and prominent thinkers.

The Commission's work comes at a critical moment in clean energy transitions around the world. As countries seek to advance their shifts to clean energy technologies, the success of these efforts will rest on enabling citizens to benefit from the opportunities and navigate the disruptions. This includes social and economic impacts on individuals and communities, as well as issues of affordability and fairness.

Commission members will explore these questions in depth, taking into account the need to see people as active participants in clean energy transitions – in collective decision-making and through individual actions and behaviours. Equity and inclusion issues will also be examined, including gender equality. The commission’s meetings will result in key recommendations in advance of COP26 in November.
