ASA researchers participated in the International Renewable Energy Forum

Advanced Systems Analysis program researchers participated in the International Renewable Energy Forum which took place on 6-7 September, 2018 in Vienna, Austria. The forum brought together financing community such as the European Bank, Natxis Corporate and Investment Bank, private sector such as Clifford Chance, OrbisTech, CEER Sustainable Development Work Stream and DLA Piper as well as stakeholders from academia, associations and international community including UNIDO, the University of Applied Science and International Federation of Green and Global ICT. 

The goal of the forum was to discuss such topic as new European Climate and Energy Framework 2030, insights on corporate power purchase agreements, access to financing for green investment, market and industry trends in renewable energies and emerging markets as well as best practices and the new alternative finance tools.  

Dr. Nadejda Komendantova provided the talk about participatory governance of energy transition: example of climate and energy model regions in Austria. The presented research results were developed in frames of the Linking Climate Change Mitigation, Energy Security and Regional Development in Climate and Energy Model Regions in Austria (LINKS) project, which was supported by the Austrian Climate Research Programme. The results provide insights on elements of egalitarian, hierarchical and individualistic discourses about energy transition and show existing in different regions practices, such as energy groups, to facilitate participatory governance of energy transition.
