US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm has been elected by the IEA’s Governing Board to chair the Agency’s next Ministerial Meeting.
The Governing Board also elected three vice-chairs for the meeting: Angus Taylor, Australia’s Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction; Tinne Van der Straeten, Belgium’s Minister of Energy; and Dan Jørgensen, Denmark’s Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities.
The meeting will be held in Paris in the first quarter of 2022. The IEA Ministerial meets every two years to set the Agency’s mandate and review its achievements. It will provide a key opportunity after COP26 in Glasgow for countries to advance how they can work together to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and meet the goals of the Paris Agreement while ensuring secure energy supplies.
