G20 New Delhi: Accomplishments and remaining issues

This episode is talking about “G20 New Delhi: Accomplishments and remaining issues”. The G20’s New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration was announced on September 10. In the absence of President Putin and President Xi, the international media, as expected, was quick to highlight the tension and divergent views over the Ukraine conflict. Consequently, the messages from the Declaration concerning energy/environment did not receive near the attention they deserved. With the participation of leaders from both the West and the Global South, the G20 can be considered as an international forum representative of the basic global direction.

G20: The voice of the Global South in energy policy

This episode is talking about “G20: The voice of the Global South in energy policy”. The G20 Energy Transitions Ministers’ Meeting in Goa, India produced its Outcome Document and Chair’s Summary on July 22. The comparison between those documents and the content of the G7 Hiroshima Summit Communiqué that was released last May, deserves close attention. The discussion among energy think tanks from ASEAN, East Asia and India that took place in New Delhi just before the Ministers’ Meeting, was also of interest and very informative. That workshop was organized by the Energy Research Institute Network (ERIN), and co-organized by ERIA and TERI. In brief, the voice of the Global South was expressed in those two events far more clearly than during the G7 Summit.

Why are energy outlooks so different? It is the demand!

This episode is talking about “Why are energy outlooks so different? It is the demand!”. There are as many long-term energy and emissions outlooks for the future as there are organizations that prepare them. The results could differ dramatically. When governments and companies rely on outlooks to support their policy and investment decisions, such wide variations in results raise concerns. Why are they so different? Mr. Terazawa provides an explanation on several points from energy outlooks.
