Transcript—Webinar audio transcript
The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) hosted this webinar for the launch of REN21’s flagship report, the Renewables 2015 Global Status Report.
Participants learned what made 2014 another record year for renewables, how increased additions of solar PV and wind in the electricity sector have driven other energy sectors, and how the energy and power markets are increasingly affected by renewable energy uptake. Investment levels and policy developments were also discussed. Presentations were followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
About the Global Status Report — REN21’s Renewables Global Status Report (GSR), first released in 2005, provides a comprehensive and timely overview of renewable energy market, industry, investment and policy developments worldwide. The report is a true collaborative effort of authors, REN21 Secretariat staff and Steering Committee members, and regional research partners, and includes the input of over 500 individual contributors and reviewers. The GSR has become the most frequently referenced report on renewable energy business and policy, serving a wide range of audiences.
Other Webinars in this Series — Additional webinars on the GSR will address energy efficiency and demand-side management, data collection, distributed renewable energy, heating and cooling, and renewable energy integration.
