The Norwegian embassy in Stockholm and the Swedish institute of foreign affairs (UI) hosted an event at the embassy on the geopolitics of energy transitions. Hans Olav Ibrekk (representing the government of Norway) presented a new report on the geopolitics of the energy transition after which André Månberger discussed the report with him in light of his own research. The event was moderated by Gunilla Reischl (UI).
Approximately 70-80 representatives from governmental agencies, academia and companies visited the event.
The report was authored by a commission with representatives from Norway, Germany and the United Arab Emirates as part of an initiative by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
