Renewable energy targets are now found in over 160 countries around the world, making them a defining feature of the global energy landscape. In recent years, the most rapid growth in renewable energy targets has occurred in Africa, as jurisdictions across the continent begin to draft laws and energy strategies that include explicit targets for the share of renewable energy in the electricity, transport, or heating and cooling sectors. As this trend continues, jurisdictions from across Africa have the opportunity to draw on some of the key lessons from the last 40 years of designing and implementing renewable energy targets and to learn from one another as they draft more effective policies to achieve them.
This webinar will be presented by one of the lead authors of a major global report recently published on the topic by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and one of the experts who provide assistance via the Clean Energy Solutions Center’s Ask an Expert service. The main objective will be to focus on what policymakers and regulators across Africa can do to design more effective targets as they seek to scale up the share of renewable energy in the mix and attract private investment, drawing on examples from within Africa as well as from around the world.
The presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
