G20: No common communiqué on the energy transition, but rules of conduct


JAKARTA (Reuters) – The meeting of G20 energy ministers ended on Friday without a joint statement due to “disputes”, but an agreement was drawn on the energy transition and the development of “clean” energies .

A non-binding resolution, the “Bali Pact”, was adopted which details the measures to be taken towards a zero emissions objective, said Indonesian Minister of Energy Arifin Tasrif. It will be presented at the November summit.

Indonesia is chairing the G20 this year.

Friday’s meeting could not come up with a joint statement “because there were differences between the countries”, Arifin Tasrif told reporters.

Indonesia, a major exporter and consumer of coal, plans to phase out fossil fuels and aims to have almost a quarter of its energy come from renewable sources by 2025, up from around 12% currently.

The Bali Pact, details of which were not immediately available, aims to strengthen national energy planning and implementation, boost investment and improve energy security, Arifin Tasrif said.
