A joint side event at COP27 in Sharm-el-Sheik discussed how to accelerate the just energy transition in Coal and Carbon Intensive Regions. The aim was to share and discuss the learnings from different EU-funded research and implementation projects (TIPPING+, CINTRAN, ENTRANCES, TRACER).
The presentations focused on addressing the transformations in Coal and Carbon Intensive Regions, structural changes, the complexity of the dynamics, the pace of the transformation, as well as the regional capacities to adapt and to cope with the transition.
