Marrakech Partnership Implementation Labs: A cleaner power sector by 2030: Scaling renewables and storage based systems

Location: Lotus Room, Action Room 2
Hosts: The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC),  International Energy Agency (IEA), WBCSD and ReNew Power, under the Marrakech Partnership, the UN Climate Champions, the Race to Zero and the Race to Resilience
Date: 15 November 2022
Time: 14:00-15:30 EET

Description: This Implementation Lab on Energy Day of COP27 will showcase the renewable energy-based technology mix that will enable decarbonization of the global electricity system. We are at an unprecedented moment of cost-competitiveness, investment and technological maturity of grid-scale renewable energy. Primarily, the acceleration of renewable energy will focus on wind and solar power, which need to make up at least 40% of all global electricity generation under the Clean Power 2030 Breakthrough outlined by the UNFCCC Climate Champions and Race to Zero, in addition to storage technologies.

This Lab will examine how wind-solar-storage based systems are scaling up in countries around the world, bringing together policymakers, supply-side industry and civil society to showcase the progress that has been made and the key roadblocks to scaling these systems by 2030.
