New Study on
100% Renewable Electricity Worldwide
Invitation to the launch of the study on November 8, 2017 in Bonn
As costs for renewable energy keep falling, and emerging markets lead in green energy investment, a global power system fully based on renewable energy is no longer a long-term vision.
On November 8, 2017, Lappeenranta University of Technology and the Energy Watch Group will present its new groundbreaking study*, which models a global transition to 100% renewable electricity.
The first of its kind modeling shows that existing renewable energy potential and technologies, including storage, can generate sufficient and secure power to cover the entire global electricity demand by 2050. With favorable political frameworks, this transition can be realized even earlier.
The study “Global Energy System based on 100% Renewable Energy – Power Sector” will be launched at the Global Renewable Energy Solutions Showcase (GRESS) event on November 8, 2017 from 13:30 to 16:00 CET on the sidelines of the international climate change conference COP23 in Bonn.
Join our experts to discuss the results of the study and its implications for the global efforts to combat climate change and the global energy policy-making.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone, who might be interested to attend the event.
Address: Federal Art and Exhibition Hall, Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 4, 53113 Bonn. It is a 10-minute walk from the Bula Zone of COP23.
*The study is co-funded by the German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU) and Stiftung Mercator.
