|| This webinar is part of the Grantham Institute - Climate Change and Environment and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) joint webinar series.
If we are going to achieve the ambitions of the global Paris Agreement on climate change, then the proportion of global electricity supplied from renewable resources needs to increase dramatically. Whilst the costs of key technologies like solar and wind power are reducing dramatically, economics alone are not enough to drive deployment – the policy and regulatory environment must also be supportive.
This webinar will focus on how to create a pro-renewables environment, building on the course of the same name, part of the Clean Power MOOC. During the webinar, course leader, Dr Jeffrey Hardy and IRENA Director of Knowledge, Policy and Finance Centre Dr Rabia Ferroukhi will discuss the components of a pro-renewables environment, including setting meaningful targets, stimulating the supply chain, stimulating investment, and policy and regulations that support renewables in different contexts.
The webinar will be chaired by Dr Rob Gross, Reader in Energy Policy and Technology at Imperial College London.
