“Training and Education for Wind Power and Renewable Energy” (by World Wind Energy Association, UNIDO, African Platform for Community Power and Rural Electrification, Chinese Wind Energy Association, International Renewable Energy Academy/York University and Danish Folkecenter)

Sustainable solutions and energy challenges, whether at the global, regional or country level, will require an increased share of renewable energy in the global energy mix. And renewable energy basically substitutes fossil resources with human capacities and labour. This calls for effective international cooperation in related capacity building and sharing of best practices. It constitutes a foundation for a sustainable use and management of the various renewable energy technologies as well as their adaptation to local contexts and needs. The webinar will present the current situation in an exemplary manner and discuss requirements and needs for the future expansion of the renewable energy sector. Experts from universities, international organisations, industry, training institutes, associations and beyond will talk about how to improve international coordination and how to create the international momentum for a stronger focus on training and education.

28 September, 12:00 – 1:00 PM CEST
“Concentrated Solar Power from dusk till dawn: Blueprint for 200 MW tower plant fills the PV gap” (by ATA Insights)

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is a key player in the renewable energy market, overcoming some of the issues PV plants leave in the dispatch of solar energy. Tower projects with molten salt storage have taken key attention of CSP projects, helping to provide dispatchability and flexibility to grid operators. CSP plants are complex systems that need proper engineering, that’s why the project “CSP Reference Plant” has developed a blueprint to save time and money through an optimized and standardized plant layout which fits with few adjustments to many locations and different requirements. Join the event to find out more.

28 September, 7:00 – 8:00 PM CEST
“An Introduction to Virtual Power Plants” (by Clean Energy Group and Clean Energy States Alliance – CESA)

Utilities across the U.S. are beginning to tap into hundreds, sometimes thousands, of devices in homes and businesses to create virtual power plants (VPP). These VPPs can deliver many of the same services as traditional power plants but they’re power by distributed resources, including water heaters, smart thermostats, and, increasingly, solar and battery storage. This webinar will cover the basics of what a virtual power plant is and how it can create value for both utilities and customers, with examples from real-world programs.

29 – 30 September

“Resolving plastic packaging waste: Can deposit return schemes provide a breakthrough?” (by Euractiv)

While the prevalence of single-use plastic has grown dramatically over the last 20 years, the systems to contain, collect, reuse and recycle it have not kept pace. Plastic drinking bottles could be made out of 100% recycled plastic, known as rPET, and campaigners are pressing drinks companies to significantly increase the amount of recycled plastic in their bottles. The EU Single-Use Plastics Directive sets a 90% separate collection target for plastic beverage bottles by 2029. Policymakers are debating whether deposit return schemes (DRS) can be the solution to achieve this target…

“Radical Social and Technological Innovation” (by NTNU Energy Transition Initiative)

One of the keys to a just and sustainable energy transition, is innovation – creation or adaption of new processes, technologies, services and forms of interaction that enable us to change the future of energy. Innovation is not all about start-ups – we need innovation within and between both authorities, collaboration networks, large industry players and research. This webinar will focus on opportunities, innovation processes, and social and technological solutions that could be a part of our energy future. How could we increase the success rate and scale of new innovations? How could new social processes and technological solutions change the future of energy? What are the important barriers to innovation?

“Are economists getting climate dynamics right and does it matter?” (by European Institute on Economics and the Environment, Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research – ZEW and Centre for Energy Policy and Economics at ETH Zurich – CEPE)

Economic models of climate change produce climate dynamics inconsistent with current climate science models: (i) the delay between CO2 emissions and warming is much too long and (ii) positive carbon cycle feedbacks are mostly absent. These inconsistencies lead to biased economic policy advice. Controlling for how the economy is represented, different climate models result in significantly different optimal CO2 emissions. A long delay between emissions and warming leads to optimal carbon prices that are too low and attaches too much importance to the discount rate. Similarly, we find that omitting positive carbon cycle feedbacks leads to optimal carbon prices that are too low. We conclude it is important for policy purposes to bring economic models in line with the state of the art in climate science and we make practical suggestions for how to do so.

30 September, 3:00 – 4:00 PM CEST (9:00 AM EST)
“Adaptation Solutions: Helping the Most Vulnerable Adapt and Build Back Better” (by Global Commission on Adaptation, World Resources Institute – WRI)

“Parametric Insurance to Reduce the Risks of Renewable Energy Investments” (by Climatelinks/CEADIR)

Hydro, wind, and solar power are variable renewable energy (VRE) resources with normal daily and/or seasonal fluctuations that are taken into in financial planning for these investments. These energy resources complement each other because they have different intermittency patterns and the impacts on the power grid are also offset by other electricity sources and energy storage. However, VRE generation can also be substantially reduced by major droughts, floods, or prolonged periods of insufficient wind or solar resources. Parametric insurance reduces the financial risks to large, utility-scale VRE investments from extreme weather or climate events that have a major impact on resource availability for power generation. It does not cover the cost of physical damage to infrastructure or equipment… Join the webinar to find out more.

2 October, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CEST

As a result, industry actors and policymakers are looking for ways to incentivize financial participation. However, the success of those measures remains unclear. This webinar aims to investigate the challenges associated with financial participation and related incentives to derive best practice guidelines for developers and policymakers. The interactive session will draw on the German experience, addressing many questions such as: What is the role of citizens in the German energy transition following recent changes to community investment rules? What could be the way forward in dealing with these challenges?
