Last week we hosted a webinar on energy transition and investing in the light of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. We were delighted to have Anna Mikulska as our keynote speaker.
Anna is a fellow at the Baker Institute, who advise the Biden Administration on energy policy. Anna shared her insights on the current geopolitical situation and its impact on energy security.
One of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG7) is to ensure that there is "clean and affordable energy" for all, as highlighted in the 2030 development agenda. The question is how best can this goal be met. One way to ensure affordable energy together with a growing demand for clean energy, is with more R&D and capital flowing into decarbonisation of fossil fuels as this combines the climate objective with energy security and hence affordability. Therefore, the focus should not be entirely on investing in renewable sources. After all, the goal of climate change action is not getting rid of fossil fuels per se and replacing them with renewable energies, the real goal is decarbonisation.
