Webinar: Breaking Down Silos: What does linking renewable energy, energy access and energy efficiency really look like?

The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21), is hosting a no-cost webinar on breaking down silos and what linking renewable energy, energy access and energy efficiency really looks like.

Breaking Down Silos: What does linking renewable energy, energy access and energy efficiency really look like? (Webinar) 8 June 2017 9 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time | 3 p.m. Central European Summer Time

Information about the event from the Clean Energy Solutions Centre.

Renewable energy and energy efficiency can be used in concert to address energy access concerns. By reducing the amount of energy required to provide modern energy services, energy efficiency is an important—and in some cases necessary—driver of energy access. Evidence shows that energy efficiency can dramatically improve the economics of energy access by reducing the upfront investment and ongoing fuel costs and by improving system reliability and performance where existing supply resources fall short. Some estimates calculate that the use of currently available energy efficiency measures could result in the delivery of universal access to modern energy services using 50%–85% less energy than prevailing estimates say is required. The effects are especially pronounced in energy access efforts that focus on distributed, off-grid renewable energy systems.

This webinar will begin with an overview of REN21’s newly released Renewables 2017 Global Status Report and will then look at this nexus of renewables, energy access and energy efficiency and what progress has been made to date.

Join us to discuss what is needed to establish strong connections between renewable energy, energy access and energy efficiency.

Speakers
  • Hannah E. Murdock, Project Manager & Analyst, REN21
  • Matt Jordan, Project Manager, Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership, CLASP
  • Aaron Leopold, Global Energy Representative, Practical Action

The presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
