Webinar series on Long-term Energy Scenarios

21 March 2019 | Energy Transition

The climate objectives of the 2015 Paris Agreement require a global transformation in the energy sector. United Nations Sustainable Development Goals similarly call for a shift to clean energy based largely on renewable sources and technologies. In parallel, accelerating innovations over the past decade have changed the ways that energy is generated, distributed and used, as well as how the system operates and links with wider infrastructure.

Launched at the 9th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) in 2018, the Long-term Energy Scenarios (LTES) campaign aims to explore these challenges. Long-term energy scenarios have become an invaluable tool, both to facilitate international debate and guide national policy-making to accelerate the sustainable energy transition over the coming decades. Although long-term scenario planning is not new, the growing complexity of modern energy systems calls for new approaches. While the right choices can bring great economic benefits, poorly informed decisions can result in significant economic costs, including stranded assets, or the failure to employ disruptive innovations to spur better economic development.

To promote the wider adoption and improved use of long-term energy scenarios, the LTES campaign is hosting a series of regular webinars.

The webinar series will look at how to best use scenarios for decision making, improve scenarios for the clean energy transition and identifying approaches to building capacity in governments. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with leading practitioners in this field including with leading government representatives and research institutions around the world. LTES webinars will be held on a near-weekly basis, see more information in the webinar series planner.
