CCG COP Events

Webinar 1

Building bridges between ministries:
How Data-to-Deal can help ministries of energy and ministries of finance to work together for mutual benefit.


Webinar 2

If fossil fuels are the past, what is the future?
How can the global community support fossil fuel producers in low- and middle-income countries to achieve the sustainable development goals in a low-carbon world?

Global Green Grids:

The Case for Inter-Continental Power Interconnection

GREEN GRIDS: Launch of new study assessing the critical role of interconnection to support a Paris-aligned energy transition 

Event Flyer: here


Increasing grid transmission capacity and interconnecting electricity systems is going to be vital to enable the scaling of the renewable electricity supply needed to meet international climate goals. To assess the global benefits of grid interconnection, a study has been undertaken led by TransitionZero in partnership with CCG, Dartmouth College and Simon Fraser University. This global analysis highlights how interconnection can significantly reduce the system costs of achieving a net zero global electricity system. It identifies where interconnector projects are of most value to achieving emission reductions to get to net zero, providing insights on potential future projects. 


An Emerging and Effective Approach to Supporting LMICs in Climate Transition

Development and Transition Pathways for LMIC Fossil Fuel Producers in a Carbon-Constrained World

Transport Decarbonisation:

Accelerating the Just Transition Towards Transport Decarbonisation in LMICs

A hybrid event followed by a Transport Community Reception – co hosted by CCG, FIA Foundation and SLOCAT). 

 While transport related CO2 emissions in LMICs are relatively low in comparison to High-Income Countries (HICs), net zero strategies are needed to create a just transition, so nobody is left behind. The process of “just decarbonisation” in the transport sector is relatively complex and not yet well understood, particularly in the context of LMICs.  

To accelerate the Just Transition towards Transport Decarbonisation the CCG Transport Day joined forces with the Hamburg Sustainability Conference 2024 (HSC). The HSC aims at fostering new partnerships and pioneering international alliances of policy makers, private sector leaders and civil society representatives who are willing to commit to action. The first HSC will be held on June 20­–21, 2024. CCG and HSC presented this Transport Day as a contribution to setting the agenda for the Hamburg Sustainability Conference together. 

The CCG Transport Day conveyed the essence of the Data-to-Deal approach in a transport context and shared the latest thinking and research focusing on three critical questions:  

  • How to improve informal transport services that are critical for LMIC urban populations 
  • How to accelerate transport decarbonisation through better open-data and open-source models  
  • How to increase climate finance flows to sustainable transport projects in LMICs 

Accelerating the Development of National Knowledge Ecosystems: report launch 

A New Report: We launched our recent publication: “Addressing Challenges in Long-Term Strategic Energy Planning in LMICs: Learning Pathways in an Energy Planning Ecosystem”, published in the Energies journal Special Issue: “Changes of Global Energy Systems: Bridging the Gap between Policy, Education, and Research”, collaboratively authored by 19 individuals.  These authors come from various universities worldwide, including African institutions (such as Strathmore) and institutions in the UK, Canada, and Sweden.

Summary: This session introduced a paper that explores an innovative movement emerging in developing nations and international organisations. This movement is dedicated to addressing climate change policy and mobilizing financial resources. Its primary focus is empowering local thought leaders and establishing environments conducive to local knowledge generation. The ultimate goal is to bolster large-scale, collaborative, and sustainable long-term energy planning and climate change mitigation efforts. The paper’s content was collaboratively developed in partnership with leading international organisations specialising in this field.
