Nations should be allowed to embark on their unique route to decarbonisation and choose the most accessible resources but international regulatory certainty and collaboration is required if climate change targets are to be met, according to speakers at a session of the World Energy Congress.

The world is increasingly demanding clean energy but not all such energy sources are available in different parts of the globe, speakers pointed out in the panel on driving change for sustainable energy.

They argued that in the fight against climate change, countries need to work to develop available resources including gas, renewables, hydro, solar, electrification and also nuclear.
