Session 1: Energy modelling confirms: 100% RE is possible
04. November 2020
What will planet earth look like in 2050? This online seminar series explores the lessons learned from collaborative efforts in Costa Rica, Tanzania and Bangladesh to develop long-term 100% renewable energy pathways and lasting policy reform. They will also explore the role renewable energy plays in other key sectors such as cities, agriculture and transport and how a transition towards 100% RE can help decarbonise these sectors and making them more resilient in the future. The three sessions will take place once a week between early and mid- November 2020.
Energy scenarios a crucial for effective, long-term energy policy making. Scenarios can guide policy making, highlight transition pathways and potential technology options to increase the share of RE in a country’s energy mix and maximise socio-economic benefits (e.g. job growth, fossil fuel cost savings, CO2 emission reductions). This session on “Energy modelling confirms: 100% RE is possible” of our online seminar series highlights the lessons learned from energy scenario modelling for Bangladesh, Tanzania and Costa Rica and explores why participatory scenario development and inclusion of stakeholders across all sectors and jurisdictions is necessary to achieve a just 100% RE future.
