GJETC Outreach November 2021
Key strategies of Germany and Japan for climate neutrality
The challenges posed by the increasing global climate crisis call for more substantial actions to reach climate neutrality. An acceleration of energy transition and socio-ecological transformation are indispensable. At COP 26 in Glasgow, both Germany and Japan will present their specific ambitious targets and roadmaps.
Against this backdrop, the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council will present key approaches found in recent long-term scenario studies on how to reach carbon neutrality until 2045 (Germany) or 2050 (Japan) in an online Outreach Event on
Thursday, 25th November 2021, 8:30-10:00h CEST / 16:30-18:00h JST.
In the last Council Meeting in September 2021, the GJETC members agreed on the processing of a new comparative study on long-term scenarios assessing the different strategies and approaches of reaching carbon neutrality by 2045/50; it will be finalized until February 2022. This outreach event will present first results and discuss key strategies of Germany and Japan covered by most recent long-term scenarios, demonstrating the variety of strategic approaches in achieving climate neutrality and discussing possible conclusions in the light of the outcomes of COP26.
