Energy webinar: Addressing challenges in clean energy investment
The International Energy Agency estimates that the world needs $44 trillion in new clean energy investment by 2050 to have an 80% chance of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. While 2015 was a record year for clean energy investment (more than $350 billion worldwide), substantial challenges remain to reaching the required sums of clean energy investment that will be required.
This webinar will discuss DOE’s activities in addressing this investment challenge through their Clean Energy Investment Center, formed in January 2016. The Center was launched to assist and support investors by providing a one-stop-shop to access subject-matter experts, acquire the latest research studies and reports and identify promising energy products. The Center’s mission is to advance private, mission-oriented investment in clean energy technologies that address the present gap in U.S. clean technology investment and spur the public-private partnerships needed to realize the goal of Mission Innovation, a multinational initiative to dramatically accelerate global clean energy innovation.
Presenting the webinar will be Dr. Sanjiv Malhotra, Director of the Clean Energy Investment Center. Dr Malhotra’s presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
