Welcome to the Energy Transitions Commission
We know that economic growth and climate action can be achieved together. The Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) was convened to help identify pathways for change in our energy systems to ensure both better growth and a better climate. This is inspired by the work of the New Climate Economy.
The Commissioners bring a remarkable range of viewpoints and extraordinary depth of experience. They include incumbent energy companies, industry disruptors, investors, equipment suppliers, non-profit organizations, advisors, and academics. What they share is a progressive attitude to reforming the energy system.
We expect the below list of confirmed Commissioners to grow to continue to increase the diversity of the ETC. Commissioners are affiliated with sponsoring and non-sponsoring organizations. The ETC is funded by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, BHP Billiton, BlackRock, Catapult Energy Systems, CO2 Sciences, the European Climate Foundation, General Electric, Generation Foundation, the Grantham Foundation, OPower, the Paulson Institute, the Rocky Mountain Institute, Royal Dutch Shell, RWE, Schneider Electric, Statnett and the UN Foundation. Regardless of funding every Commissioner has an equal voice and participation in ETC activities.
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 degrees Celsius. We will provide decision-makers with insights and options for action at local and sector level, based on objective research and wide engagement with actors in the energy system. We hope you find the work of the Commission insightful and activating.
