At its third meeting, the Global Commission on the Geopolitics of Energy Transformation will continue to review the geopolitical implications of the expected energy transformation and the large scale deployment of renewable energies.
Launched by the Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in January 2018, the Commission is composed of senior and experienced individuals drawn from a range of geographical and professional backgrounds. Its mandate is to: review how energy transformation may change national and global politics; develop a knowledge framework on the geopolitical challenges and opportunities associated with energy transformation; develop conclusions for further discussion; and develop an action framework laying out how countries can thrive in the new energy economy under the Paris Agreement on climate change and the SDGs. A summary of the first meeting is here.
The Commission is seeking views and perspectives by energy experts from academia, politics and the private sectors. Experts can submit written statements of up to 2000 words on the geopolitical implications of the energy transformation until 30 September 2018.
