TRANSrisk organised the Paris Committee on Capabity Building (PCCB) side event "The Clean, the Dirty and the Unwanted: Capacity Building for Energy Transitions" at COP24 on Wednesday 6th December 2018, in Katowice, Poland.
The event took place at the PCCB Capacity-Building Hub / RYSY Meeting Room 24 - Area E, and explored tools and methodologies on building capacity for low carbon transitions, aiming to support municipalities and countries in achieving their National Determined Contributions.
TRANSrisk researchers Jenny Lieu from Science Technology Policy Research Unit, University of Sussex (SPRU), Takeshi Takama from Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), Aleksander Szpor from Institute for Structural Research (IBS), and Mbeo Ogeya from SEI presented outcomes from TRANSrisk case studies in Indonesia, Poland, and Kenya. More particularly, the event begun with Marzena Chodor, co-chair of PCCB, who chaired the session, while Jenny Lieu presented methodologies and tools of capacity building for energy transitions at the local level. Moreover, Takeshi Takama presented outcomes from the Indonesian case study and specifically on capacity building for sustainable business with farmers and models for scaling-up policies. Aleksander Szpor reflected on optimal instruments and institutions for capacity building towards an inclusive and just energy transition with findings from TRANSrisk case study in Poland which explored coal substitution by renewables. Also, Mbeo Ogeya presented outcomes of the Kenyan case study on charcoal and geothermal sectors regarding capacity building for energy planning processes and policy development. Finally, Zsolt Lengyel, from the Institute for European Energy and Climate Policy & Verico SCE, highlighted a synthesis of the presented findings and specifically on integrating local priorities and modelling approaches for energy transition and climate action.
