Global Energy Transition

Energy transition refers to the global energy sector’s shift from fossil-based systems of energy production and consumption — including oil, natural gas and coal — to renewable energy sources like wind and solar, as well as lithium-ion batteries. Professor Alexander Kirjukhin will highlight all the major trends in the global energy sector. The various models that can be applied to Central Asian countries and the Caucasus will be examined using examples from countries undergoing the energy transition. The seminar will conclude with a quiz, for which rules and prizes will also be announced.
