10 – 13 May 2016 |Bonn, Germany
Government and industry agreed on the need for a clean energy revolution to achieve climate change targets. But what technologies should we focus on? And what still hinders key technological breakthroughs? IRENA Innovation Week focused on developing a unified vision, along with sector-specific strategies, to find innovative solutions and accelerate renewable energy deployment.
In line with the 2016 theme, “The Age of Renewable Power”, participants were asked to consider the question of power system possibilities: centralised, distributed or supergrids. The focus of discussions was on how technological innovations, operational innovation and systemic innovations in policy, regulation and business, interact and re-enforce each other.
