The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21), hosted this webinar on the launch of REN21’s flagship report, Renewables 2018 Global Status Report.

Investments in renewable energy, while higher than in earlier years, were not on the scale needed to meet the objectives of the Paris climate agreement. Investment, which is regionally concentrated and inadequate to achieve universal energy access, needs to increase in the sectors and regions that need it the most. Simply put, the global renewable energy transition is progressing far too slowly.

The webinar began with the key findings from REN21’s Renewables 2018 Global Status Report and then delved into the varying investment levels across regions and its impact on access, specifically across developing countries, Africa and India. Presentations were followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
