Innovation in Clean Energy

Thursday, June 28 | 9:00 - 12:30

Over 1.2 billion people cannot access electricity and about 2.8 billion are suffering indoor air pollution due to the use of non-clean energy including solid biomass, kerosene, and coal for cooking. Yet clean energy options are becoming increasingly viable and desirable for the developing world. The capital cost of solar photovoltaic technology, for example, decreased by 50% from 2012-2017, and it will continue decreasing by another 50% over the next five years. Despite this potential, scaling-up clean energy investment and deployment in developing countries still faces financial and operational barriers and  challenges. This round table will engage ministers, private sector leaders, and prominent energy experts to discuss how  innovative business models can be developed for promoting clean energy innovations.
