Securing clean, affordable, modern and sustainable energy for all is critical. Globally, 785 million people lack access to electricity and 2.6 billion people do not have access to clean cooking. Energy efficiency and renewable energy must work hand-in-hand to reach this important goal.
This opening event will focus on the challenges and opportunities to achieve equitable clean energy transitions in Latin America and the Caribbean. It will launch a week of capacity building and exchange among policymakers and experts from around the region focused on energy efficiency.
The launch event will bring together leaders from the region to discuss how to advance energy efficiency. Speakers will include global and regional leaders on energy, energy efficiency, and energy transitions. It will be fully open to the public and streamed in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
