Session Objectives

Energy security and climate change have become issues at the forefront of global policies, and in response, many parts of the world are looking to transition towards more sustainable growth models. Clean energy will play a fundamental role in this process. Policies and measures regulating the industry often have significant trade implications and an increasing number are being brought to the attention of the WTO. Are the rules adequate to arbitrate and adjudicate in this new trade area? In response to this challenge, the E15 expert group in this area has pinpointed issues and stress points in need of strategic action. The session will draw on the expertise of leading academics, top-thinkers, and policymakers to assess and discuss their current work.
