Mobilizing Capital for the Energy Transition: Global Perspectives
September 19, 2022
6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Center on Global Energy Policy, in partnership with BeyondNetZero, hosted a public event focusing on pathways and opportunities to mobilize capital for a fair and fast energy transition. The event featured distinguished experts providing perspectives on the energy transition landscape from a capital markets and policy perspective across both developed and emerging markets.
During the course of the conversation, the following questions were explored:
How are investors managing to balance the long-term policy trajectory toward net zero with short-term volatility around the energy crisis and uneven legislative/regulatory action on climate among countries?
What have been the most successful examples of scaling clean energy technology and how can those be deployed in hard-to-abate sectors?
What are the unique challenges to scaling capital investment in clean energy to deliver breakthroughs in developing markets, particularly in developing and emerging economies and in the context of November’s COP27 discussions?
The event was organized into two sessions:
Jason Bordoff, Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy and Co-Dean, Columbia Climate School
Lord John Browne, Co-Founder and Chairman, BeyondNetZero
Tariye Gbadegesin, Managing Director and CEO, Arm Harith Infrastructure Fund
Moderated by Catherine McKenna, Chair, UN High Level Expert Group on Net Zero Commitments, Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy, and former Canadian Environment and Climate Change Minister
