Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Thursday, March 7, 2024, from 08:00 am to 10:00 am ET, virtually and at 1030 15th St NW 12th Floor, Washington, DC 20005, for a workshop on “Advancing US-clean energy partnerships in emerging markets post-COP28.” 

This workshop will focus on identifying clear pathways to achieving net-zero by building on outcomes from COP28 and strengthening clean technology and trade partnerships between the United States and emerging markets. Participants will discuss decisions and outcomes from COP28 that impact clean energy deployment in emerging markets, how positive momentum toward accelerating clean energy transitions can be sustained moving into COP29, and mechanisms for turning net-zero from a target to a reality while ensuring energy security and sustained economic growth in the energy transition. 

This hybrid discussion between partners from the United States, Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and South/Southeast Asia will be contextualized by presentations from the Atlantic Council. Experts will outline their research on the potential for clean energy deployment in the participating focus regions as part of the “Accelerating Clean Energy Transitions Technology Needs Assessment,” funded by the US Department of State. The discussion aims to validate preliminary findings of fact-finding delegation trips and stakeholder engagements while evaluating the impacts and opportunities pertaining to energy transitions resulting from COP28 in the focus regions.
