There is an urgent need to make the right decisions about our energy systems. We are a diverse group from across the energy landscape, aiming to accelerate change towards low-carbon energy systems that enable robust economic development and limit the rise in global temperature to well below 2°C.

 

The Challenge

SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

One of the greatest questions of our time is how to provide the energy needed for a growing and more prosperous global population, without damaging the environment beyond repair. Billions of us need better access to energy - to meet basic needs and to industrialize. Yet at the same time, our energy systems need to become cleaner, to support long-term prosperity.

The energy decisions that will be made in the next 15 years will determine whether both of these objectives can be met.

Who We Are

LEADERS FROM ACROSS THE ENERGY LANDSCAPE

We are a diverse group of leaders from public, private and social sectors. We are energy users and suppliers, researchers and advisers, with experience in various geographies.

Together, we aim to accelerate change towards low-carbon energy systems that enable robust economic development and limit the rise in global temperature to well below 2°C. We hope to build a trusted fact-base and coalition to support energy policy and investment decision-making across countries and sectors.

Publications

SPARKING DISCUSSION AND SYSTEMS-LEVEL THINKING

The Energy Transitions Commission will publish regular insights on topics related to energy transitions. To frame these, we have published a short Position Paper that introduces the Commission and lays out a systems approach to energy transitions.

In addition, an assessment of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) to COP21 identifies country priorities and emissions reduction opportunities. Exhibits of both reports and underlying data are available.
