IEA at COP26: Climate resilience for the global clean energy transition

Background information

Many countries have announced ambitious targets for clean energy transitions. However, changes in climate are likely to pose a significant risk to the energy sector, directly affecting fuel supply, energy production, physical resilience of energy infrastructure and demand. Climate resilient energy systems support the clean energy transition by addressing adverse impacts of climate change on renewable energy, promoting sustainable development by ensuring reliable energy services, boosting energy security through coping with climate-driven disruptions, and reducing risks from climate disasters. This event will discuss how we can enhance climate resilience of the energy system on the path towards net-zero emissions.
