This session is part of the Clean Energy Regulators Initiative Webinar Programme.
Theme 7 - Promotion of renewable energy technologies
Module 1: Setting renewable energy targets
Renewable energy (RE) targets are now found in over 160 countries around the world, making them a defining feature of the global energy landscape.
However, the function, design, and overall impacts of RE targets remain poorly understood. While RE targets are undoubtedly important in providing a clear signal to investors, and in mobilizing investment, the majority of RE targets around the world remain voluntary, with little monitoring or enforcement to ensure that countries remain on track.
This webinar will attempt to shed light on these and other aspects of renewable energy targets, while outlining how policymakers can ensure that their targets are met on time, and on budget.
