The seminar gathered GEA authors and energy experts with their Norwegian counterparts for discussions on how the GEA analyses and findings can inform Norwegian research and decisions on energy policy and technologies for sustainable energy pathways. IIASA's Shonali Pachauri spoke about energy access at the event.
Coordinated by IIASA, GEA was led by some of the world's leading energy experts in research, academia, business, industry and policy, representing both the developed and the developing world. The report comprises the work of more than 500 authors and reviewers over 6 years, with the goal of facilitating equitable and sustainable energy services for all.
A report about the event is available on the Norwegian Research Council Web site.
