Join REN21 for GSR2018 Webinars

CESC_logoJoin 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. But these positive developments tell only part of the story.

 

The webinar will begin with the key findings from REN21’s Renewables 2018 Global Status Report. It will then dive into the status of renewables in the heating, cooling and transport sectors and what is needed to speed the uptake of renewables to meet climate objectives and the SDGs.

SPEAKERS: Hannah E. Murdock (Project Manager & Analyst, REN21), Ute Collier (Senior Programme Lead, Renewable Energy Division, IEA), Holger Dalkmann (Interim Secretary General, SLoCaT Partnership)

 

Getting Investment Where It’s Needed: How do we level the playing field? – June 26 7:00 EST / 13:00 CEST / 16:30 IST

 

Investments in renewable energy, while higher than in earlier years, were not on the scale necessary to meet the objectives of the Paris climate agreement. Regionally concentrated and inadequate to achieve universal energy access: investment needs to increase in the sectors and regions that need it the most. Simply put, the global renewable energy transition is progressing far too slowly. Register here 

 

SPEAKERS: Laura E. Williamson (Outreach & Communication Manager, REN21), Kanika Chawla (Senior Programme Lead, CEEW), Dr. Christine Grüning (Senior Project Manager/Policy Expert, Frankfurt School – UNEP Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance), Aaron Leopold (CEO, AfricAMDA)

 

There will be ample time to ask questions during each webinar. Take this opportunity and register.
