COP25 Side Event Accelerating energy transitions and raising ambition based on decreasing costs of renewables

13 December 2019

in Japanese

Renewable Energy Institute, together with Fraunhofer Insitute for Systems and Innovation Research, hosted a side event on 13 December during the 2019 UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Madrid, Spain which took place from 2 to 13 December (extended until 15 December).
As part of their commitments to the Paris Agreement, parties will have to review and possibly strengthen their NDCs by 2020. In this context, they have the opportunity to take into consideration that the cost projections for renewable electricity production and batteries have decreased substantially since the preparation of the current NDCs.

The event presented new analyses of energy transitions towards decarbonisation and raising ambition of NDCs based on the lower costs projections, including case studies for countries in East Asia and Latin America. Implications were discussed with practitioners from the case study countries.
