About The Event
Mongolia has set a national goal “To reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 22.7 percent by 2030 compared to 2010 levels,” which could be increased to 27.2 percent. The President of Mongolia, U.Khurelsukh, officially stated at the COP26 to the UNFCCC that it is necessary to launch the “Billion Tree” national movement and accelerate the development of renewable energy in order to achieve the target.
The energy sector has an important role to play in achieving the nationally determined contribution targets and is committed to reducing total greenhouse gas emissions by 49.7 percent by 2030. However, only 10 percent of total domestic energy production came from renewables in 2021. Therefore, it is not so convincing that we would achieve the target successfully.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of Mongolia’s energy sector so the year 2022 is an important year for the sector. Therefore, to celebrate the historic anniversary of the energy sector and contribute to the prosperity of the sector, therefore the International New Energy Summit 2022 will be organized under the theme of “Energy Transition”.
The main goal of the summit is to discuss about solutions to the challenges of greenhouse gas emissions reduction from energy production in Northeast Asia to support sustainable energy sector development in the region. In addition, attracting the interest of international investors in Mongolia’s energy sector as providing them with the necessary information will be an important driving force for the development of a sustainable energy sector.
