As part of its G20 presidency, Indonesia is seeking a global deal to accelerate members' energy transition.

The plan would entail major investments. The question is: How to finance the energy transition, especially in the context of reaching carbon neutrality pledges that vary across G20 countries? Apart from traditional financial and policy instruments, countries also need to fully employ new and innovative schemes to support clean energy financing and markets.

This virtual workshop aims to explore financing mechanisms vital to countries' energy transition, with a focus on ASEAN members.

The event is jointly organized by the Institute of Economic and Social Research Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Indonesia and the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) and is a side event of the T20 Summit. T20, or Think20, is the official engagement group of G20, bringing together leading think tanks and research centers worldwide.
