About the Event
Wednesday 21st July 2021 4.00pm - 6.00am JST/KST 3.00pm- 5.00pm HKT/SGT/CST
AIGCC and Japan Energy Transition Initiative (JETI) are hosting a seminar as part of JETI's Online Seminar Series on Business, Finance and Climate Change. This seminar brings together key stakeholders of Japan’s power sector along with the head of Europe’s key electric power industry association to discuss how the industry globally can work with governments on policy innovation towards meeting climate targets.
The collaboration between the power sector and the government will be key to Japan meeting its net zero targets. The highly anticipated revision of the Strategic Energy Plan this year will spell out the country's power mix for 2030 and this will have major implications for medium- and long-term emissions trajectories. The webinar will start with presentations from the speakers before moving onto a panel discussion on “What should the power sector’s role be in progressing a strong policy towards the 2050 net zero goals, and how can they take advantage of the global opportunities in the energy transition?”. There is an opportunity for Q&A prior to closing. Join this seminar which will feature a representative of a major Japanese financial institution involved in this engagement initiative.
Simultaneous Japanese/English interpretation provided via the Zoom platform.
Speakers: Kristian Ruby, Secretary General, Eurelectric
Katsuhito Manabe, Chair of the Board, Renewable Energy Association for Sustainable Power supply (REASP)
Seiji Kawazoe, Senior Stewardship officer, Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Asset Management
Moderator: Kei Takahashi, Policy Researcher, Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES)
