Renewable Energy Track at COP22
COP22 has been coined the “Action COP” referring to its role as the first COP after the ratification of the Paris Agreement. The Agreement calls to limit temperature increase to 1.5 C and bringing emissions to zero. Renewables will play a central role to meeting this objective. At COP22 organisations have come together once again to demonstrate that renewable energy deployment is the fastest, cleanest, most reliable and most economically beneficial way to meet our climate goals.

Role of RE in meeting the 1.5C target
Cities, islands and regions have proven that achieving 100% renewable energy is not only feasible but also beneficial for the society, if the right policy framework facilitates the transformation. Despite this logic, policymakers have not responded with the level of measures necessary to meet the 1.5C target. This side event provides a platform to unveil some of the underlying challenges and propose concrete solutions to implement the Paris Agreement. Practitioners and experts share their insights in an interactive dialogue.

E-Mobility and the Energy-Transport Nexus
This session will look at sectoral drivers in the transport and renewable energy sector and identify opportunities for strategic partnerships. Experts from the two sectors will outline the motivation to engage with the other sector. A panel discussion will look at how joint planning can increase the uptake of clean energy and ensure efficiency in the urban transportation system.
This event is an opportunity to think about what “swarm” electrification is, how it is defined, and how our respective organisations could engage in such an approach.
It is also an opportunity to meet others working in this area and make some new connections.
The event has been designed to be small and informal.
