  • CONFERENCE OPENING CEREMONY AND SPECIAL ADDRESSES

    The high-level dialogue is intended to enhance the understanding of sustainable energy and possible policy drivers to achieve a common goal on sustainable energy. It will provide an opportunity to explore how the United Nations can help implement to pursue sustainable agendas putting to the fore the regional context.

  • MINISTERIAL DISCUSSION № 1:

    «Addressing challenges of sustainable energy»

    The 2030 Agenda requires countries to pursue concerted and accelerated action on sustainable energy in their national programs to reconcile the world’s growing need for energy services with mitigating the impacts of energy resource development and use. Countries need to understand what has been agreed both in their own national contexts and from others’ perspectives. Only then can different but equally effective development pathways be pursued efficiently and collaboratively.

    Format: one Keynote address, short interventions on the below subjects by other panelists followed by active discussions.

    • The new global sustainable development agenda;
    • Energy outlook and appropriate indicators – trend, gap, and challenge;
    • Energy balance and energy security;
    • The role of fossil fuels in future energy systems;
    • Impacts of oil price developments on achieving the energy related sustainable development goals;
    • Future sustainable energy systems and balancing markets; and
    • Regional specificities in reaching the energy-related sustainable development goals.
  • COFFEE BREAK

  • PRESS-CONFERENCE

  • MINISTERIAL DISCUSSION № 2:

    «Transition to low carbon future»

    There is a first gap between current actions taken by governments and the commitments they have made both to Agenda 2030 and in Paris, and a second gap between their commitments and the ambition of limiting temperature rises to well below 2°C. The rate of improvement in energy efficiency, the deployment of net low carbon energy solutions, the uptake of renewable energy and the provision of sustainable access to modern energy services are insufficient. Energy’s contribution to 2030 Agenda will falter in the absence of concrete measures to reduce energy intensities, rationalize energy use, optimize energy resources, deploy new energy technologies and sustainable energy infrastructure, and closely involve end-users and new generations to create the necessary behavioral change.

    Format: one Keynote address, short interventions on the below subjects by other panelists followed by active discussions.

    • Pathways to sustainable energy;
    • The role of renewable energy within future energy systems;
    • New technologies and innovation to meet the SDGs;
    • Reinforcing synergies between renewable energy and gas;
    • National action plans and holistic energy policies;
    • Overcoming investment barriers in the region; infrastructure finance;
    • Enhancing market conditions, the right way to improve carbon intensities; and
    • Water, food and energy nexus.
  • LUNCH

  • MINISTERIAL DISCUSSION № 3:

    «Promoting green technologies and investments»

     

    The ongoing transformation of global energy systems requires increased government investment in clean energy innovation, private sector engagement, and dissemination of advanced technologies to facilitate joint research and information sharing. The international community needs to encourage collaboration among relevant research laboratories and institutes to promote the development of innovative clean energy technologies. Launch of International Centre for the development of green technologies and investment projects under the auspices of the UN in Astana is a concrete step forward towards meeting the challenges of sustainable energy.

     

    Format: one Keynote address, short interventions on the below subjects by other panelists followed by active discussions.

     

    • Energy productivity: measuring and tracking progress;
    • Development of innovative clean energy technologies;
    • Clean technology transfer;
    • Green finance mechanisms: trends and impacts; and
    • Promotion of regional connectivity of energy infrastructure projects.
