This year's Vienna Energy Forum consists of three major energy events in three days: first the VEF plenaries, on May 14, then the Austrian World Summit, on May 15, and finally the PFAN Global Investment Forum, on May 16.
This event, organised by UNIDO, GEF, CTCN and PFAN and hosted by the State Secretary for Sustainable Development of Morocco, will discuss ways to unlock prosperity through clean technology innovation and entrepreneurship at the bottom of the pyramid.
The G-STIC 2017 conference focuses on connecting technological innovation to decision making for sustainability. It aims to build knowledge bases and global expert networks to support the technological transitions needed for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
REEEP is a partner in the organisation of the Vienna Energy Forum (VEF) 2017, which will be themed Sustainable energy for the implementation of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. It will highlight the multiplier effects of integrated approaches for sustainable development, and accentuate the potential of the sustainable energy nexus as well as innovation to drive accelerated sustainable growth.
Enterprises in the REEEP Portfolio are not about business as usual. They are testing innovations in pioneer markets at the frontiers of poverty alleviation and climate impact, and face myriad challenges in breaking even, much less achieving scale. Analysing and understanding these challenges and how they can be overcome is our foremost objective.
REEEP invests in clean energy markets, targeting small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as drivers of innovation and change in high-impact value chains. Efficient and sustainable value chains are essential for creating the green growth the world needs in order to build prosperity, fight poverty and reduce environmental and climate damage.
Relevant, timely and credible knowledge is critical to addressing climate change. The Climate Knowledge Brokers Group will report on new collaborative ways for managing data and information, sourced from different silos to create knowledge, insight and understanding. Includes hands-on case studies.
The Climate Knowledge Brokers (CKB) Group will hold 2 events during COP20: Official Side Event and Latin America workshop. CKB will also take part in the Development and Climate Days organized by the Climate & Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).
