Over the past year, Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) workstreams provided support to countries around the world for the development of power sector decarbonization action plans. At CEM14 in Goa, India, the first cohort of countries – Australia, Chile, the European Commission, India, and the United Kingdom – released their action plans to accelerate power sector decarbonization and transformation in their countries.

Explore the action plans on the 21CPP website: Action Plans for Rapid Power Sector Decarbonization.

Brought to you by the CEM’s Clean Energy Solutions Center (CESC) and 21st Century Power Partnership (21CPP), the Power Sector Decarbonization Action Plan Series highlights these power sector decarbonization action plans and prospects for implementation. Over six sessions, each country will present on their specific action plan and discuss how it contributes to achieving their climate goals, reducing emissions, and transforming their power sector.

In our introductory webinar, speakers will discuss how lessons learned in power sector transformation and decarbonization led to the development of the action plans and how these action plans have accelerated international decarbonization efforts. The session will end with a Q&A with the audience.
