Energy security vs. Energy transition: Turbulence ahead?
Tokyo Back-to-Business Program Series 2022
1 min read
In recent years, there has been a laser focus on climate change. However, throughout the world, recent events have pushed energy security to the top of the agenda. To meet short-term needs, some governments have begun to roll back green policies to ensure the stability of their energy supply chains and to limit price shocks, seemingly pushing out the timeframe for transitioning to cleaner fuels. While some commentators have raised concerns of the much needed energy transition being side-tracked, a deeper look at this multifaceted issue suggests that governments, and indeed companies, need to balance their short-term needs with their long-term targets—focusing on making the right investments to develop the infrastructure for a net-zero future.
Join our panel of speakers as they discuss whether energy transition can overcome the current challenges and consider solutions that address long-term energy security.
