Description
Starting in mid-April, UN-Energy in partnership with Sustainable Energy for All and other stakeholders will organize a series of workshops to walk different constituencies through the process of creating an Energy Compact and answer questions.

To accelerate action to achieve clean and affordable energy for all (SDG7) on a trajectory in line with the Paris Agreement and the SDGs, Energy Compacts are being mobilized by UN-Energy as part of the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy in September 2021. All stakeholders – including national governments, cities, businesses and civil society organizations – are invited to prepare their voluntary commitments in the form of Energy Compacts. These include the specific actions they will take to achieve SDG7 by 2030 in line with net-zero emissions by 2050.

Two tiers of workshops will be held:

Introductory workshops will familiarize participants with the basic features of Energy Compacts. These workshops will be repeated every week in different time zones, starting with a presentation followed by Q&A. Registration for these workshops is now open.

Deep-dive and thematic workshops will aim to further support different constituencies in elaborating their commitments. These will be followed by one-on-one conversations with UN-Energy experts to help interested parties to finalize their Compacts. The deep-dive and thematic workshops will be by invitation only; to take part, please contact the Energy Compact team at un-energycompact@un.org.
