LET’S MEET UP
Meet up with us at one of the following events where REN21 will be participating.
Covenant of Mayors Investment Forum – Energy Efficiency Finance Market Place
19 February 2020 09:00 - 18:00
Let's meet in Brussels, Belgium
The Covenant of Mayors Investment Forum – Energy Efficiency Finance Market Place showcases successful projects on financing climate adaptation, energy efficiency, clean mobility and innovative energy planning, as well as initiatives working across Europe to facilitate the market for climate and sustainable energy finance.
The event is organised by the European Commission's Directorates-General for Energy and Climate Action and the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) in collaboration with the Covenant of Mayors. You can find the event agenda and more information here.
We will have a booth at the event. Please come by and pick up a Renewables in Cities Report!
Decarb Cities Conference
25 February 2020
Let's meet in Vienna, Austria
An increasing share of humans live in cities. This trend requires no-pollution solutions to maintain local air quality, reduce the effect of heat islands and provide the fair share of cities in the fight against climate change.
DecarbCities forum will address this challenge and will present technical and organizational solutions to cities, in particular when it comes to the replacement of existing fossil combustion technology using polluting fuels such as coal, oil and gas. The location of the conference, Vienna, is particularly suited to connect eastern and western cities, discussing which solutions are applicable to the specificities of the East European building stock.
The program will include high-level discussions on urban planning and development, European energy policies, and on the capabilities and future application of urban energy systems.
REN21's Duncan Gibb will take part in the policy debate "What do we need from the European Union?"

EPEE Policy Breakfast
4 March 2020 08:00 - 09:45
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 Executive Secretary Rana Adib will be a speaker for session four, ‘Managing the Politics of the Transition: Barriers and Opportunities’. More info here.
Nordic EV Summit 2020 - Entering the Electric Era
23 April 2020 - 24 April 2020
Let's meet in Oslo, Norway
The Nordic EV Summit is a joint effort of the Norwegian EV Association, the leading Norwegian tech magazine Teknisk ukeblad, Nordic Energy Research and SAMS Norway.
