On Friday 5th November from 20:00 to 21:00 GMT+1, AURES II will be at COP26 with a hybrid – both in presence and online – side event. For nearly three decades the UN has been bringing together almost every country on earth for global climate summits: COP26 is the 2021 United Nations climate change conference, and this here it will take place in Glasgow, UK.
Title of the event: “De-risking & scaling-up renewables through market-based policies – practices from EU & the world”
Description: 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.
