Denmark is hosting a virtual Energy Action Day on 16 September from 13.30 – 20.00 CEST

Phasing out fossil fuel and replacing it with renewable energy, energy efficiency and electrification is key to combat climate change and keep the global temperature rise to 1.5°C within reach.

Governments, the private sector, civil society and international organizations need to work together for higher ambition and more action faster.

The Energy Action Day brings together a broad set of stakeholders to discuss how to accelerate such collaboration. At national and international level. It will feature discussions and showcase ambitious energy transition-related commitments and initiatives to accelerate energy transitions around the world. The event will be a stepping-stone towards the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy and COP26 in Glasgow. Denmark, the International Renewable Energy Agency, (IRENA), UN Environment Programme, (UNEP), and the World Economic Forum are hosting the event supported by the UK COP26 Presidency.
