The New Economic Order: Responding to the Challenges of the Time
Pavilion F, conference hall F3

The energy transition is the answer that many countries have to the global problem of combating climate change. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020–2021 had a negative impact on the low-carbon energy sector, but nuclear and renewable energy were able to quickly recover and resume growth, particularly in Asia. However, the escalation in global tensions that has taken place in 2022 casts doubt on the ambitious strategies and plans for an accelerated transition to green energy. Nevertheless, analysts have every reason to believe that low-carbon energy will once again regain its momentum in the long term thanks to regulation in numerous countries, the scaling up of technologies and a decline in costs. How will low-carbon energy develop in the short term? What prospects do the world’s leading organizations and energy experts see for the development of renewable energy and nuclear energy? Which regions will drive their development? How will they develop in countries that are already rich with conventional hydrocarbons?
