REN Alliance SB56 Side Event

The REN Alliance is hosting an official side event during the UN Climate Change Conference SB56 which takes currently place in Bonn, at the head quarter of the UNFCCC Secretariat. The theme of the side event will be: 

Climate Protection and Energy Security – Two Problems with the same solution: Renewable Energies 

The world is facing two crises both related to energy: the climate crisis and the security crisis, manifested in the war in Ukraine. National energy strategies must focus exclusively on all types of renewable sources for achieving low emission energy and energy independence. Experts will shed light on how both crises can be tackled with a strategy that focusses primarily on a full switch to renewable energy. 

Speakers include: 

  • Dr. David Renne, International Solar Energy Society 
  • Rian van Staden, Global100RE
  • Stefan Gsänger, World Wind Energy Association 
  • Bharadwaj Kummamuru, World Bioenergy Association 

The side event takes place in the World Conference Center Bonn on 8 Jun from 16:45-18:15 Central European Summer time and is open for SB56 delegates. The general public can watch the side event on the UNFCCC youtube channel:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mC9c5KNFA4Y&list=PLBcZ22cUY9RIInokbMFmY6b28skN2wQtF&index=27
