High-Level Dialogue on Energy 2021


The High-level Dialogue on Energy, convened by UN Secretary-General António Guterres at the summit level at the request of the General Assembly, was a historic opportunity to accelerate action on clean, affordable energy for all (SDG7), as the first gathering of leaders in more than 40 years at the UN solely devoted to energy issues.

The Dialogue brought together Heads of State and Government as well as leaders from business, foundations, and international, civil society and youth organizations, to mobilize commitments and actions. Over 100 Member States had inscribed to participate.

The Dialogue had two main outcomes: a global roadmap with recommended actions and milestones to accelerate achievement of SDG7 by 2030; and voluntary commitments from Member States and other stakeholders in the form of “Energy Compacts”, setting out actions planned to advance clean, affordable energy for all by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050. Over 130 Energy Compacts have been submitted by national and local governments, businesses, international organizations, NGOs, youth networks and others, and are being posted in the Registry as they are reviewed.
