Public-private energy partnerships critical to hit global net zero targets, says former head of IEA

In an exclusive interview ahead of Japan Energy Summit & Exhibition (JESE) in June, Chiranjib Sengupta speaks to Nobuo Tanaka, Executive Director Emeritus of the International Energy Agency, and CEO of Tanaka Global, on the global energy transition, energy trends in Asia, building a hydrogen economy, and Japan’s journey to net zero. Tanaka touches on the global urgency to speed up the transition, the progress made at COP28 on decarbonising economies and industries, and why more innovation, technology and financing are necessary to achieve net zero by 2050. He also explains why government measures and private sector efforts on decarbonisation and net-zero solutions must come together at this critical moment for Japan’s energy industry, and the pivotal role of Japan Energy Summit & Exhibition in securing a low-carbon future.
