POLIMP - Final POLIMP Webinar

Final POLIMP Webinar

POLIMP Webinar: "Financing Renewable Energy in Europe towards 2030"

Implementing the Paris Agreement will require substantial additional investments in renewable energy sources around the world and also in the European Union. This POLIMP Webinar looked into the consequences of the new global climate deal for financing renewable energy in Europe. In the context of the revision of the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED), the webinar also discussed how to overcome existing barriers to financing RES deployment, how to reduce investment and policy risks, and how to mobilise investments for renewable energies in Europe.

This event proved to be a success. It attracted a high number of participants, 96 in total, and increased the outreach of the POLIMP results to many participants outside of Brussels.
