Transforming transport: Ipieca side event at COP24

Transport is a major global emitter of greenhouse gases and, as living standards and population rises, the number of miles travelled is expected to increase. This presents a challenge: how can we transform the energy sector to help meet the Paris Agreement goals? Is electrification the only answer? Even for trucks, planes and ships? Or do we need a broader range of solutions? 
IPIECA will be holding a side event at this year’s 24thConference of the Parties (COP24)to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)in Katowice, Poland to continue the dialogue on low-emissions pathways with a focus on low-emissions transport.
Transforming transport – is electrification the only answer?

When: Tuesday, 11 December, 15:30-18:30; includes networking reception and refreshments 
Where: IETA Business Hub, Pavilion H-5, COP24, Katowice, Poland
