G20 countries meeting in Indonesia failed to agree a joint communique on energy transition, having earlier been unable to issue a common statement on emissions reductions. According to Reuters, a non-binding agreement to accelerate adoption of clean energy, called the Bali Compact, was endorsed and will be discussed at the G20 leaders’ summit in November. Climate Home News said there were disagreements between ministers over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, climate finance and use of 1.5 or 2°C as the target for limiting climate change. COP26 President Alok Sharma and incoming COP27 President Sameh Shoukry both said some countries had backtracked on previous commitments. The Bali summit also saw the launch of an Energy Sector Roadmap to Net Zero Emissions in Indonesia by the International Energy Agency and Indonesia’s energy ministry, and the signing of a high-level statement on the country’s 2060 net zero pathway.
