Specialist seminar on “Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency in Small Island Developing States and beyond”, 7 Dec 2015

The next Climate Change Conference in Paris (COP21) calls the United Nations member states to send their national CO2 reduction targets for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Even if they contribute minimally to global CO2 emissions, the Small Island Developing States will be affected strongly by global warming and set a good example: The first submission came from the Pacific Marshall Islands, Fiji and Mauritius.

The Seminar “Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency in Small Island Developing States and beyond” presents current needs of small island states on their way to a secure energy supply and energy independence. Our key note speaker from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) highlights key political and economic aspects that affect successful introduction of efficient, green technologies in island states whereas our experts from Mauritius and Fiji provide distinctive insights into the potential, but also specific challenges for the implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies in their home countries. From a business perspective, our final speaker presents practical examples of successful technology transfer projects in developing countries.

The seminar taking place in Hamburg, Germany, is free of charge.
