Exhibitions, field trips and talks on the latest technology solutions for energy efficiency, organised by the Energy Efficiency Solutions Forum. All Global Conference attendees are invited to the Solution Summit. Please visit www.energyefficiencysolutionsforum.com to find out more information, including a more detailed agenda.
10:00 - 11:00
Side event: Energy Efficiency in Southeast Asa
Energy Efficiency in Southeast Asia: Innovative Financing Mechanisms to Address the under-investment of Energy Efficiency Organised by the Southeast Asia Energy Transitions Partnership and UNOPS.
11:00 - 12:30
Side event: Retrofit for Net Zero
Organised by the SENSEI h2020 project and Danish Board of Technology. An interactive, multi-stakeholder workshop to discuss the governance landscape around energy retrofitting buildings and the financing of such initiatives. The workshop will identify legal and policy level obstacles and generate possible solutions for enabling such retrofitting. While energy retrofitting in buildings holds vast potential for reducing energy consumption, the necessary means to financing it can be inaccessible. Thus, it is necessary to take a look at the governance and policy landscape and consider how to make financing more widely accessible.
13:00 - 14:10
Side event: Live recording of Watt Matters podcast
