Online Seminar Program - Energy Transition in Asia -


    Addressing climate change is one of the most critical issues in the world, in light of recent global events such as major natural disasters. In order to realize global carbon neutrality at the earliest possible time, Asian countries need to achieve Green Growth and to accelerate various and pragmatic energy transitions, which reflect the circumstances of each country and utilize all fuels and all technologies. 

    At the same time, it is necessary to simultaneously achieve both sustainable growth and a transition to a cleaner social system, especially in Asia, where energy demand continues to grow alongside economic growth. Japan will fully support such various and realistic energy transition efforts in Asia through its comprehensive support measure called “Asia Energy Transition Initiative (AETI)”.

    As a part of AETI, a series of  webinars / seminars have been planned which will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the concept of realistic energy transitions. Those also introduce related technologies, activities and efforts by the Japanese Government, Japanese companies and international organizations, which can be applicable to each Asia country. 

    Through these seminars, participants will be able to deepen their understanding of the importance of accelerating energy transitions and how it can be achieved considering their own circumstances in each country.
