The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21), is hosting a free webinar on the launch of REN21’s flagship report, Renewables 2018 Global Status Report (GSR). The renewable power sector is dynamic and undergoing rapid changes, including with falling costs, record installations, increasing investment, and several new, innovative business models. But these positive developments tell only part of the story. While the global energy transition is fully underway for the power sector, for other sectors, it has barely begun. The power sector on its own will not deliver the emissions reductions demanded by the Paris climate agreement or the aspirations of Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7). The heating, cooling and transport sectors, which together account for about 80% of global total final energy demand, are lagging. The webinar will begin with the key findings from REN21’s Renewables 2018 Global Status Report. It will then dive into the status of renewables in the heating, cooling and transport sectors and what is needed to speed the uptake of renewables to meet climate objectives and the SDGs The panelists for this webinar will be Hannah E. Murdock, Ute Collier and Holger Dalkmann. The webinar presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience
