Please join the Atlantic Council on Wednesday, November 15 from 10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. for a virtual fireside chat with The Hon. David Turk, US Deputy Secretary of Energy and Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency on priorities for COP28 and the status and direction of the global clean energy transition.
The upcoming COP28 is a key moment to advance the global clean energy transition. This conference features the conclusion of the first “Global Stocktake,” providing an opportunity to evaluate climate progress toward the goals of the Paris Agreement and formulate next steps. At the same time, the conference offers an opportunity to launch and advance initiatives from countries, industry, and other non-state actors – on issues from renewable energy deployment to methane abatement – amid mounting expectations for climate action that keeps the 1.5-degree goal within reach.
This discussion will take place virtually and will be broadcast over YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. To receive the event information, please register using the form on this page.
