Powering the Energy Transition: A Tale of Two Hemispheres Home Page

The world is undergoing a transition to an energy future that involves reducing the environmental impact of energy use while ensuring modern energy access for a growing global population. This will require reducing the emissions of existing hydrocarbon fuels, developing renewable energy sources, and deploying new energy use and efficiency technologies.

Join the GBSN for Energy Transition Impact Community as we convene a multi-part virtual series to explore key elements of the energy transition journey, through the lens of the global north and global south. The second session in our series is Repurposing Legacy Assets. During this discussion, hear from topic experts from academia and industry as we explore the challenges and benefits of repurposing legacy fossil fuel infrastructures for a low carbon energy future. Join us as we dive deeper into how the actions of various stakeholders, specifically financial institutions, companies and governments, can find a path to a more orderly transition.
