JETPs – Enabler for a Just Energy Transition
The energy transition can no longer be decoupled from a just transition. Both need to exist simultaneously. A just energy transition must encompass the delivery of a fair and inclusive shift to a renewables-based energy system that provides equitable opportunities for all. This side event will explore the opportunities that arise from implementation of Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETPs), including workforce development, productive uses of energy for local communities and improved gender equality. The event will spotlight successful community engagement models that empower local populations to actively participate in renewable energy projects in order to achieve a just energy transition.
