On 9 July, the International Energy Agency is organising this year’s key event on energy and climate issues – the Clean Energy Transitions Summit. The event brings together countries, representing 80% of the world’s energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, to discuss measures to boost economies, create jobs, reduce global emissions and make energy systems more resilient.

Participants include ministers from the world’s largest energy users, as well as Executive Vice President Timmermans (EU). Speakers include United Nations Secretary-General Guterres, CEOs from leading energy companies, top investors, heads of regional development banks and other key international organisations and leaders from civil society.

In addition to two plenary sessions, the summit will host high-level panels. These will focus on accelerating clean energy technology innovation, inclusive and equitable recovery, and resilient and sustainable electricity sector. The panels are co-chaired by European Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson.
