Powering the Future: Clean Energy Innovation in Developing Markets hears from experts within the sector highlighting innovative solutions for clean energy access in low and middle income countries.
The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) and ITN Productions have co-produced a news-style programme Powering the Future: Clean Energy Innovation in Developing Markets looking at the importance of accessing cleaner, greener energy for developing economies now and in the future.
Investment in renewable energy across the globe remains deeply uneven. Advancing market readiness for clean energy and energy access is extremely challenging across hugely diverse global landscapes. Unlocking global ambitions for greener energy across the developing world needs sustainable local financing.
Anchored by ITN Productions presenter Sharon Thomas from the ITN Productions London studio, Powering the Future: Clean Energy Innovation in Developing Markets hears from experts within the sector highlighting innovative solutions for clean energy access in low and middle income countries.
The programme looks at the human and environmental benefits of accessing cleaner, greener energy, mobilising and accelerating private capital in developing markets and raises awareness of the importance of supporting market readiness in developing and emerging markets. The programme features informative interviews and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations filmed in studio and remotely on location.
