Innovation – A Catalyst for a Net Zero Emissions Energy Transition: Insights and Experiences of the Vienna Energy Club

Tuesday, 9 November 2021

11:15 - 12:15 GMT

Location: SDG7 Pavilion, Hall 4, Scottish Event Campus & Online

Co-organised by REEEP and its partners from the Vienna Energy Club. Meeting the UN 2030 Agenda and Paris Agreement ambitions poses the challenge of reaching net zero emissions by mid-century. This calls for flexible, enabling policy and regulatory frameworks, the emergence of new business models, and a complete redesign of our energy systems within the next thirty years to enable a just and inclusive energy transition.

The VEC members will address each of the three SDG7 targets and provide their unique insights and experiences in this high-level panel discussion on the role of innovation in a net-zero emissions energy transition.

Mobilising private sector finance in Africa to achieve SDG7

Tuesday, 9 November 2021

16:45 - 18:00 GMT

Location: Glen Affric Multimedia Studio 3 (closed event) & Online

This side event is organised in collaboration with Sweden, Denmark, Nefco and REEEP.

Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa (BGFA) is a multi-donor programme that incentivises the private sector to offer affordable and clean energy access to rural communities in Sub-Saharan Africa through off-grid solutions, with the aim to establish up to 1.35 million energy connections and benefit more than 6 million people by 2026.

The panel will look at how off-grid electrification can be incentivised and explore financing opportunities for the private sector. Results from the piloting programme in Zambia will also be presented.

Registered delegates can take part in the virtual discussions via the COP26 platform, and the event will be livestreamed on YouTube for public viewing.
