How can Emerging Markets Leapfrog to Clean Electricity?

12 Jul 2021   |   1530–1700 hrs IST | 1100-1230 hrs BST

Renewable electricity is the cleanest and cheapest alternative to fuel growth in demand in emerging markets. India is already leading the way, as several other countries continue to seize this opportunity. Renewables create jobs, reduce pollution, reduce import costs, and accelerate development, creating unique conditions to achieve the trifecta of jobs, growth and sustainability. 

The Parishad webinar will mark the launch of the report ‘Reach for the Sun: The Emerging Market Electricity Leapfrog’ by Carbon Tracker and CEEW. The session will focus on the ongoing energy transition in India and emerging economies and will map the pathways to align the energy transition for emerging economies with the Paris climate targets ahead of COP26.
