【Theme】Challenges for Carbon Neutrality and Energy Security
-Searching for a realistic and pragmatic pathway-
Session I “Smooth and orderly energy transition policies in the context of optimum use of fossil fuels”
・What should be the future of the upstream investments in the pathway to the ongoing energy transition while the world, for the years to come, will continue relying on fossil fuels for energy security?
・What is needed to promote “decarbonization of fossil fuels’ and the related investment in our energy transition?
Session 2 “Bolstering supplies of critical materials for decarbonization technologies”
・How should a massive and balanced increase in supplies of critical materials be achieved?
・From the perspective of the best low-carbon technology mix, what policy supports and commercial activities will be required to diversify supplies, address material efficiency, and accelerate recycling?
Session 3 “Energy transition in Asia”
・As the economic center of the future global growth, can Asian emerging countries pursue both carbon neutrality and energy security in a comprehensive manner?
・Can an Asian regional cooperation in the pursuit of both carbon neutrality and energy security also simultaneously contribute to sustainable economic growth?
