Under India’s G20 Presidency, the 4th Energy Transitions Working Group (ETWG) Meeting is being held in Goa from July 19-22, 2023. The two-day meeting will bring together over 100 delegates from G20 member countries, special invitee countries, and several international organisations.
The 4th ETWG Meeting is being chaired by Pankaj Agarwal, who serves as the ETWG Chair and Secretary, Ministry of Power. Bhupinder Singh Bhalla, Secretary, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Vivek Bharadwaj, Secretary, Ministry of Mines, and Amrit Lal Meena, Secretary, Ministry of Coal, will also be part of the meeting and participate in the deliberations.  
The priority areas outlined under India’s G20 Presidency include energy transitions through addressing technology gaps, low-cost financing for energy transitions, energy security and diversified supply chains, energy efficiency, industrial low carbon transitions, and responsible consumption, fuels for future (3F) and universal access to clean energy and just, affordable, and inclusive energy transition pathways.
These priority areas reflect India's focus on various aspects of energy transition and building global cooperation toward sustainable and clean energy development. 
The discussions in the 4th ETWG meeting in Goa will continue to build on the first three meetings in Bengaluru, Gandhinagar, and Mumbai respectively, to identify and promote best practices, policies, and innovative approaches that support a just and inclusive energy transition. 
The key highlight of the 4th ETWG meeting will be the detailed discussions on the draft Ministerial Communique, which is currently under discussion and will be further firmed up. 

On the sidelines of the ETWG, the meeting will be complemented by various side events. The 14th edition of CEM is simultaneously being organised by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), under the Ministry of Power, and the Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Science and Technology, in Goa. The theme of CEM14/MI-8 is ‘Advancing Clean Energy Together.’
The ministerial meeting, which marks the culmination of the ETWG meetings, will be held in Goa on July 22.
