The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a presentation and discussion of the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report 2015 with report lead author Michael Waldron, Renewable Energy Markets Analyst and Project Manager, IEA, and co-author Heymi Bahar, Renewable Energy Markets Analyst, IEA.
The Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report 2015 assesses the current state of play of renewable energy, identifies the main drivers and barriers to deployment, and projects renewable energy developments on a global basis over the next five years. Although sustained technology progress, expansion into new markets, and improved financing has facilitated more cost-effective deployment of some renewable technologies (e.g., solar PV and onshore wind), will growth in the coming years falter, or could an even faster expansion take place?
Travis Bradford, CGEP Faculty Affiliate and Associate Professor of Practice in International and Public Affairs (Director, Energy and Environment Concentration), Columbia SIPA, moderated the discussion with the co-authors following their presentation.
