Webinar – Making Markets: Corporate Renewable Energy Procurement Outlook and Opportunities in Southeast Asia

August 9, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please join World Resources Institute (WRI) and Allotrope Partners for a deep-dive webinar on corporate procurement opportunities for renewable energy in Southeast Asia. This webinar will provide an overview of the dynamic and rapidly evolving policy landscape in the region and discuss key opportunities and challenges in meeting corporate green power goals.  

Register here.

Southeast Asia is a powerhouse of global economic growth, manufacturing and, increasingly, greenhouse gas emissions. Governments in the region are grappling with how to implement their commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement while still meeting rapidly increasing energy demand from a growing industrial and manufacturing base.

In this webinar, Alexia Kelly, Partner at Allotrope Partners, and Letha Tawney, Director of Utility Innovation at WRI, will introduce an innovative public-private partnership, the Nationally Determined Contribution Investment Accelerator (NDCIA), which seeks to dramatically increase deployment of renewable energy in South East Asia and other key emerging markets by 2020. Joining forces to launch the NDCIA are WRI, Allotrope Partners and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), with support from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

Register for the webinar to learn more about advancing renewable energy deployment in this critical region.
