IEA's Renewable Energy Market Report 2017
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Heymi Bahar, Project Manager of the Renewable Energy Division at the International Energy Agency (IEA), for a presentation of the IEA's Renewable Energy Market Report 2017 (formerly titled Medium-Term Renewables Market Report). The report provides a detailed market analysis and overview of renewable electricity capacity and generation, biofuels production, and heat consumption, as well as a forecast for the period between 2017 and 2022. This year's report also assesses the off-grid solar market in Africa and developing Asia and the contribution of electric vehicles to renewable road transport.
Additionally, the Renewable Energy Market Report 2017 identifies a set of policy improvements in key markets that could accelerate the growth of renewables in the electricity sector as well as transport biofuels, necessary in all sectors for increased decarbonisation on track with long-term climate goals.
Kevin Book, Senior Associate (Non-resident) with the CSIS Energy & National Security Program, will moderate.
