Sustainable energy: paving the path towards the 2030 Agenda

May 27, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

To create a sustainable world by 2030, the United Nations lists 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG7 aims to facilitate access to affordable, clean energy for everyone around the world. According to the Energy Progress Report, in 2018, India reported that only 32% of its energy consumption was in renewable energy. However, several strides have been made in the solar and wind energy sectors. In 2020, India was reportedly ranked fourth in wind power and fifth in solar power worldwide. Although the generation of clean, renewable energy has been steadily increasing, heavy investments in the fossil fuel industry keep outweighing the progress. This webinar aims to highlight the real-world challenges in the field of sustainable energy and the steps we can take to chart the way forward. To do this, we answer the following questions:

  • As an attractive market for renewable energy, how can India improve sustainable energy generation?
  • What private and public sector initiatives drive the success of the Indian solar and wind energy sectors?
  • How can we collectively amplify and replicate these initiatives with other sustainable energy sources?
  • What steps can we take to encourage funding by financial institutions for the sustainable energy sector?

Can we harness innovation to further improve clean energy generation, distribution and conservation efforts?
