Clean Energy Forum

Clean Energy Forum

In 2023, as part of Clean Energy, the ENERPO Research Center of the European University in St. Petersburg co-organized the session “Future Energy: Alternative Sources for Sustainable Development” at the V BRICS+ International Municipal Forum.

This time the conference was dedicated to the topic of the relevance of using renewable energy sources against the background of the changing environmental situation in the world. Countries around the world are setting themselves the goal of maximizing the transition to alternative energy sources in order to reduce harm to the environment. Transforming the energy sector is a major long-term strategy for the global community, but it is difficult to say how fast the transition will be. What prospects do alternative energy have at the moment? What obstacles could slow down the development of this industry? How to accelerate the transition to green energy?

The event was held in person from November 9 to 10, 2023 at the Expoforum site in St. Petersburg with the support of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Rossotrudnichestvo and the Government of St. Petersburg.

4 The Program of the Event

Traditionally, the Forum program includes the most pressing issues of the global and Russianenergy agenda, including the topics: energy transition, sustainable development, decarbonization of the economy, green financing mechanisms, climate strategy of Russian cities, successful practices and cases of large international companies.
