Second Energy Transitions Working Group meeting concludes in Gandhinagar, Gujarat

The second Energy Transitions Working Group (ETWG) meeting under India’s G20 Presidency was held in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.

The meeting revisited the key takeaways from the previous meeting and engaged in constructive discussions and deliberations focusing on key priority areas. The proposed formation of Global Biofuels Alliance received wide-ranging support from member countries. The other key point of discussion included low-cost financing for energy transition, commitment to energy transition through addressing technology gaps, and aligning with other global organisations such as Clean Energy Ministerial, Mission Innovation and RD20 to achieve tangible outcomes. It was also agreed to continue with a focus on deployment of clean mature technologies such as solar and offshore wind. On the sidelines, the meeting was complemented by three side events, namely- Green Hydrogen–Advancing Net Zero Pathways; Accelerating cooling as a key enabler towards energy transition; Diversified Renewable Energy Supply Chains for advancing energy transitions.
