Following on from the success of last year’s call for evidence for COP26, CCG has been asked by the
Energy Transition Council (ETC) to assemble and synthesise academic evidence on eight priority topics to support ETC goals in the lead up to COP27.

This call focuses on producing policy briefs that can have an impact on policymakers at COP27 and on areas of geographic interest for the ETC and CCG.

Current Progress

34 Policy Briefs are now undergoing a blind topic review process, where two topic experts will anonymously review the briefs to providing feedback on the readability, relevance and robustness of the briefs. The police briefs should be published in August and September. You can read last year’s policy brief’s on the Evidence for COP26 page.

Energy Transition Council Topics of Interest

  • Integrated Energy Planning
  • Utility-scale renewables
  • Coal and fossil fuel transition
  • Investment (policy and instruments)
  • Green Grids
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Distributed Renewable Energy
  • Just Transition
