IEA 2016 Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report

Past Event

November 1, 2016

5:30 am - 7:00 am

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a presentation and discussion of the IEA 2016 Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report with Heymi Bahar, Renewable Energy Markets Analyst at the International Energy Agency and Project Manager of the Report. Inaugural Fellow David Sandalow will moderate the discussion following Mr. Bahar’s presentation.  The rapid spread of renewable energy is a bright spot in the global energy transition toward a low carbon economy. Despite lower fossil fuel prices, renewable power expanded at its fastest rate in 2015, thanks to supportive government policies and sharp cost reductions. Renewables accounted for more than half of the world’s additional electricity capacity last year. But even with this remarkable progress, there are questions about whether renewables are on track to reach targets set by the Paris Agreement.
