WATCH - Electrification Dialogue at Climate Week NYC

September 24, 2021

You can now watch the Electrification Dialogue: Strategies and opportunities to fast-track transport electrification held during Climate Week NYC on Friday, September 24.

Electrification of end uses is increasingly recognized as a crucial step on the pathway to decarbonize the economy and achieve the world’s development and climate goals. It allows for a high potential in carbon emission reduction due to the greater efficiency of electricity-based technologies and a growing share of zero-carbon energy sources in electricity generation.

Transportation is one of the key sectors where electrification needs to accelerate in order to unlock environmental, social and economic benefits for our businesses and communities. This session will delve into concrete experiences and actions advancing transportation electrification and explore how different actors of the value chain need to work together to achieve the energy transition.
