We are inviting you to the 15th EMANATE Webinar on "The Enablers and the Barriers of the Energy Transition". This Webinar will be presented by Gerardo Escamilla who is currently finishing his internship with IRENA's Knowledge, Policy and Finance Centre, UAE.
As an intern for IRENA's Knowledge, Policy and Finance Centre, Gerardo Escamilla's current work is focused on understanding how to define, understand and speed up the global energy transition.
This topic is important since many governments are struggling with reducing their greenhouse gases emissions to meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C target. We need to understand the enablers and the barriers of energy transition which accounts for two-thirds of anthropogenic emissions.
During this webinar he will discuss :
1. Why and how energy transitions can help solve climate change
2. How to define energy transitions with quantifiable metrics
3. How to predict the importance of the influencing factors
