Headline: The G20 and its Role in Global Energy Governance

Global energy supply is still far from sustainable. There is no comprehensive approachin global energy governance to steer a global energy transition. The G20 comprisescountries that are of utmost importance for global energy governance, and mighttherefore be well placed to coordinate action and to achieve greater coherence. TheG20 has made initial steps to formulate an energy agenda and to commission otherinstitutions. This is an appropriate approach, but more concrete steps need to followin order to accelerate an energy transition. One step could be to promote “sub-clubs”.
