Yukari Yamashita, Director of the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ); President-Elect, International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE)
The Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ) released the "IEEJ Outlook 2020" in October. It analyzes the challenges facing energy transition from the 3Es perspective (Energy security, Economic growth, Environment protection), as well as the outlook for global energy supply and demand through 2050. Demand in the Emerging Market and Developing Economies will surge, with room to grow after 2050. In Asia, where imports grow, mitigating the risk of supply disruption remains an issue. Imports growth also makes energy price competitiveness even more important. Renewable energies, with rapid costs declining, will play a major role in the pursuit of low carbonization and sustainability. Due to natural variability, however, there are several challenges to the mass introduction of renewable energy. Thus, we have been facing the "energy trilemma" which means the conflicts between 3Es. To address climate challenge issues, a "pragmatic approach" from a long-term perspective is important.
Post-seminar drinks will be held at Au Fils de Jour, Kawate BLDG, 5-8 Nishi-Shimbashi 1-chrome, Minato-ku, Tokyo beginning at 8:30 p.m.
