12 December | Madrid 

This will be a discussion around what policymakers need to do to transition to alternative clean energy sources. As part of this discussion Carbon Tracker will present an update on their 2018 global coal report. This session will focus on how to turn no new coal beyond 2020 into a reality; through discussing some of the economic opportunities around transitioning to clean energy and what policy mechanisms could be implemented to help countries do this.

We will also look to views from representatives from the UK, Canadian and Danish Government around their experience and what support is available to developing countries looking to transition to renewables. The discussion will also explore ways in which we can collaborate with countries across South East Asia.

Speakers include:

Dan Jorgensen, Danish Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities

Claire O’Neill, COP26 President

Patricia Fuller, Climate Ambassador, Canada

Durand D’Souza, Data Scientist, Power and Utilities Team, Carbon Tracker

Susanne Pedersen, Assistant Director General, Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI)
