With an amplified sense of urgency for more ambitious climate action, countries around the world are increasing their renewable energy targets and measures. In the light of major transformations of the energy system, renewable policies need to ensure that clean energy will be scaled-up, affordable and integrated into the power system. Well-designed market-based policies, particularly auctions, can implement Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), attract investments and reduce costs. Our panelists will share design learning and best practices from case studies around the world.
