The business case for increasing renewable energy investments globally depends on gathering more – and more accurate – data on the costs and performance of different technologies. The IRENA Business Forum is hosting three webinars in May, focusing on IRENA’s expanding research on renewable energy costs, with the aim of informing the private sector and advising companies on how to contribute to these studies.
The online discussions will introduce participants to IRENA’s costing analysis to date, with a look ahead to future costing studies. In-depth examination will uncover the rationale and goals of costing work, methodological issues and boundaries, and data collection challenges. Open to interested participants, the webinars will provide insights on costs ahead of the next edition of the IRENA’s on-going study, Renewable Power Generation Costs.
The sessions will end by exploring how the IRENA Renewable Costing Alliance can add value to the industry.
The webinars will be held over three days, 28–30 May, and are scheduled from noon to 1:15pm for three different regions.
28 May – Asia and Oceania will begin at noon (GMT+10:00)
29 May – Americas and Caribbean begins at noon (GMT-5:00)
