  4th IEEJ/APERC Joint International Energy Symposium 2019  ※Downloads are available here.
<Theme of the Symposium>
  
“Energy Transition: – More challenges, More opportunities- ”

1. Objective/theme:
  • While the uncertainty of global geopolitics continues to increase, how will global energy governance be secured?
  • While the shift to non-fossil fuel and renewable energy is strongly advocated out of concerns for the Environment, is the simultaneous realisation of “3E+S”, which also includes Energy security, Economic efficiency and Safety possible?
  • Are the roles of fossil fuel and nuclear power coming to an end?
  • Is it possible to realise the "2 ºC goal" (and moving ahead, the "1.5 ºC goal"), even though policies and recent developments of many countries and regions are greatly deviating from the ideal scenario?
  • In order to achieve decarbonisation, what kind of policies, corporate strategies and changes in awareness are required, and how can we accomplish these?

Session 1 “How can we maintain good energy governance under uncertain geopolitical developments?”
 - While the uncertainty of global geopolitics continues to increase, how will global energy governance be secured?
 - What is the perspective on global energy governance from the point of view of the US, Saudi Arabia, Russia and so on?
 - With the US Administration seeking greater contributions from other major countries, how will global energy governance be secured and sustained?
 - How will the stability of the Middle East region, which is important in terms of supplying energy all over the world, be realised?
 - In order to maintain good global energy governance, what should Japan’s contribution be?

Session 2 “What will be an appropriate energy mix for the Energy Transition?”
 - While the shift to non-fossil fuel and renewable energy is strongly advocated out of concerns for the Environment, is the simultaneous realisation of “3E+S”, which also includes Energy security, Economic efficiency and Safety possible?
 - How do you see the balance of the various global energy sources—oil, gas, coal, nuclear and renewables—changing in the future (becoming more or less concentrated)?
 - Will the age of coal and oil come to an end? Will only gas remain in the global energy mix?
 - In the midst of rising costs, safety concerns and the expansion of renewable energy, what are the expectations for the future of nuclear power?

Session 3 “What policies, corporate strategies and changes in awareness are needed to combat Climate Change?”
 - Is it possible to realise the "2 ºC goal" (and moving ahead, the "1.5 ºC goal"), even though policies and recent developments of many countries and regions are greatly deviating from the ideal scenario?
 - In order to achieve decarbonisation, what kind of policies, corporate strategies and changes in awareness are required, and how can we accomplish these?
 - Is it possible to achieve an energy decarbonisation scenario (such as Shell's Sky Scenario)?
 - How do the US Administration and the American people perceive climate change, and what path are they trying to take?
 - It seems that China’s President Xi Jinping is keen on leading international efforts to combat global warming. What is the current status of China’s progress and do you see them achieving their international commitments (such as the carbon intensity goals for 2030)?
