G20 India 2023

TF-4: Refuelling Growth: Clean Energy and Green Transitions

This Task Force will discuss how the green transition can be mainstreamed, the energy transition accelerated, and transition financing made more urgent and inclusive. From reducing fossil fuel dependence to technological assistance, what can the G20 do to catalyse vital inputs for this urgent transition? The transition from fossil fuel dependence to green energy needs to be equitable. How can we ensure that the green transition encompasses companies, citizens, and households in a manner that is just and sustainable? What are the instruments and institutions that are needed, domestically and globally, to ensure a swift energy transition and embed green growth in countries’ development pathways? What are sustainable energy choices that can be scaled up and are affordable? How can the G20 support international efforts such as the International Solar Alliance and others? How can green growth solutions be embedded into national development pathways? Workstreams:
  • Technology Transfer for Green Transitions
  • Climate Mainstreaming and Embedded Green Transition Policies
