SDG7 - Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

Invitation you to a guest lecture on SDG 7 - given by Simon Benmarraze from IRENA on 21 December


Lecturer: Simon Benmarraze, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Innovation and Technology Center

Content: Renewable energy generation capacity has risen substantially worldwide. Despite this rise, the deployment of renewable energy can at times be challenging if projects fail to meet certain standards needed to obtain the necessary financial support. Added to this, there is a (a) perception of high technology risk, (b) cumbersome administrative procedures, (c) insufficient transparency in the project cycle, as well as limited access to (d) institutional and (e) commercial financing instruments. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has developed the Project Navigator - an online platform providing comprehensive, easily accessible, and practical data, tools and guidance to assist in the development of bankable renewable energy projects. The platform introduces a project lifecycle process structured in several distinct phases designed to support the progressive development of renewable energy projects. This lecture will elaborate key findings from recently published and upcoming.

Date/Time: 21 December / 5 - 6:30 pm

Venue: University of Bonn, Institut für Geodäsie und Geoinformation, Nussallee 1, Room: HS I
