The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) hosted in Glasgow, UK, took place from 31 October – 12 November 2021 and was a key moment in the global effort against climate change. It marked the fifth COP since the Paris Agreement, and was therefore the first review and a moment to step up ambition.
Ofgem hosted a number of themed COP26 events, and also hosted a number of events over COP26 itself, in conjunction with relevant international organisations. More information can be found on Ofgem’s website: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/green-fair-future-ofgems-cop26-programme and details of Ofgem’s COP26 events can be found here: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications/ofgem-cop26
COP26 also provided the opportunity to launch a new platform: The Regulatory Energy Transition Accelerator (RETA/the Accelerator). RETA is a platform for global collaboration between regulators to increase the pace of the energy transition in order to reach our climate goals.
