The purpose of the Collaborative Framework on the Geopolitics of Energy Transformation (CF-GET) is to achieve a deeper understanding of the geopolitical consequences of the ongoing energy transitions and a large-scale shift to renewable energy. CF-GET will work to provide a deeper understanding of the issues of common interest to Members. Building on the work of the Global Commission on the Geopolitics of Energy Transformation, it will consolidate the latest expert knowledge and facilitate dialogue, highlighting policy options and considerations to support governments in preparing for the global energy system of the future.
The scope of the Collaborative Framework will be addressed in the form of workstreams aiming to:
The work of the CF-GET will commence with two workstreams proposed by and agreed upon by Members, with the active contribution of experts and a broad range of stakeholders. For the year 2021, the two workstreams are (i) the geopolitics of hydrogen economy, and (ii) the climate-energy nexus. As requested by members, the 2019 Commission report will serve as a baseline to inform further analyses.
Members elected Germany and the UAE as co-facilitators.
