Policy Brief – Energy Decision-Makers’ Perspectives on the APAEC: Lessons Learned and the Way Forward
Five highlights from the interviews and five suggestions for possible responses
Suggestion: “Accelerating Energy Transition and Strengthening Resilience through Greater Innovation and Cooperation”, with goals for accessibility, affordability, energy security, energy connectivity and market integration, the SDGs, the Paris Agreement and capacity building.
Suggestion: Have a common target, for which all programme areas would be accountable: “Percent of CO2 Reduction in Electricity Generation from Baseline Year X”.
Suggestion: Enhance ACE’s role beyond the current one of only assisting and supporting, to becoming a managing authority.
Suggestion: Acknowledging the importance of the proposed programmes, this could be achieved by enhancing relevant action plans in the existing programme areas.
Suggestion: ACE will organise a workshop upon agreement from the member states.
