EPEE Policy Breakfast
4 March 2020 8 h 00 min - 9 h 45 min
Let's meet in Brussels, Belgium
Heating and cooling represent half of the EU’s final energy consumption. The demand for cooling is expected to grow significantly over the coming decades as a result of a warming climate combined with major trends such as urbanisation, digitalisation and an increasing focus on health, comfort and well-being.
If no appropriate action is taken, this will lead to increasing energy consumption and emissions. Technologies are ready to address this challenge but have not been deployed yet on a broad scale.
To address barriers and raise awareness on the potential of cooling as an enabler for carbon neutrality based on the three important pillars of energy efficiency, renewables energies and system integration, EPEE will launch a broader #CountOnCooling campaign.
The EPEE White Paper “Count on Cooling: A five-step approach to deliver sustainable cooling” examines the crucial role of cooling in the 21st century.
REN21 Executive Secretary Rana Adib will deliver an intervention from 8:55-9:10.
Chatham House- Energy Transitions 2020 Conference
23 March 2020
Let's meet in London, UK
The fifth annual Chatham House Energy Transitions conference comes at a critical time for climate and energy politics, and will focus on solutions, examining different pathways actors can pursue to effectively channel the transition to deliver a sustainable, secure, affordable and inclusive future energy system.
REN21 Secretary Rana Adib will be a speaker for session four, ‘Managing the Politics of the Transition: Barriers and Opportunities’. More info here.
