Join REN21 and the Clean Energy Solutions Center for two webinars looking at specific themes detailed in REN21’s Renewables 2018 Global Status Report (GSR).   From a Renewable Electricity Transformation to a Renewable Energy System Transformation: Renewables in heating, cooling and transport – 21 June 7:00 EST / 16:00 CEST   The renewable power sector is dynamic and undergoing rapid changes – with falling costs, record installations, increasing investment, and several new, innovative business models.
