National focal points from various climate initiatives gathered in Saly, Senegal, 19-20 September, for a workshop on how to mainstream technology in climate action plans.
"Consider the CTCN as your own Convention body, driven and guided by your interests and needs. We are not a project, not a workshop, but long term assistant to you in your every day work and challenges in implementing your climate actions", said Jukka Uosukainen, CTCN Director.
The objective of the course is to raise awareness about the key dimensions that need to be addressed in developing sustainable energy solutions. The course will provide insights into energy systems modeling, best practices in energy policymaking, best available technologies and financing schemes. The training will take place in Groningen, the Netherlands, 15 - 23 November.
El objetivo es la formación recursos humanos con conocimientos para colaborar en la formulación, desarrollo y gestión de proyectos de energía renovables y de otros proyectos que implementen tecnologías y procesos productivos que contribuyan al desarrollo sustentable del país. Esta formación comprende el conocimiento de las tecnologías, sus principios de funcionamiento y su integración a sistemas de generación de energía.
International experts will meet in Bonn, Germany, to identify policies that can support countries in accelerating the deployment of technologies for reducing greenhouse gases and adapting to climate change – from LED Lighting to climate-smart agriculture.
Once identified, the policies will be presented to governments during the UN Climate Change Conference in November this year.
The CTCN's strategic partner, DNV GL, has created a global outlook of the future energy system. At a time of uncertainty for energy stakeholders, the Energy Transition Outlook provides a forecast of our energy future through to 2050, from an organization with an equal footing in fossil and renewable energy.
The Green Climate Fund and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) are stepping up collaboration to accelerate the development and transfer of technologies for energy-efficient, low-carbon and climate-resilient development.
