Accelerating the transformation of the energy sector

Tuesday, April 4th: 15:00 - 16:00


Renewable energy is a fundamental part of the world’s ongoing energy transformation. They provide a unique opportunity to develop an energy system that underpins sustainable development objectives. To support the ongoing energy transformation, technical aspects, market, regulation and business models will need to be rethought and innovated. On the basis of recent IRENA analysis and the Ministerial discussion at the IRENA General Assembly in January 2017, this session will discuss priority areas for immediate action to address the challenges brought about by the ongoing transformation.
