The Clean Energy Forum has been established in 2015. When we prepare the agenda for the forum, our intention is to create a platform for a dialogue between energy companies, academia, expert community, non profit organizations, and the government.
In 2017 and 2018, we discussed energy transition, decarbonisation and climate strategies. This year we would like to focus on success stories of municipalities and companies. We would like to discuss how to communicate and replicate successful practices - and how to make these practices known and more widely applied in Russia.
The Forum is supported by the Russian Renewable Energy Development Association, the Climate partnership of Russia, leading international consulting companies, as well as Russian energy companies.
Cities provide housing for the majority of the world's population and consume 70% of the world's resources and energy. Urban transport, infrastructure, residential and public buildings not only require a lot of energy, but also contribute to increasing greenhouse gas emissions.
Key topics of the Forum:
Clean energy and energy transition
Best practice of corporate, municipal and national energy and climate strategies
Research agenda for clean energy and sustainable development
