On December 18th, 2023, The Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ) held a workshop for the Saudi Japanese Automobile High Institute (SJAHI) at the SJAHI auditorium , jointly sponsored by Saudi Arabia and Japan.
In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, energy efficiency has become a crucial policy issue to utilize its valuable hydrocarbon resources and achieve net-zero emissions by 2060, following the “carbon circular economy” approach announced by the Crown Prince. The Japanese government is cooperating with the Kingdom in many areas of energy efficiency to support its energy efficiency challenges. To continue this progress, this workshop aims to train the Kingdom’s younger generation of energy efficiency experts for the future and develop new strategies to promote energy efficiency in the transportation sector by sharing experiences and exchanging ideas between experts from the Kingdom and Japan.
