We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
The IOREC will act as a platform for promoting off-grid renewable energy deployment and will offer the opportunity to gain insights into the current status of energy access, to discuss the key barriers to scaling up off-grid renewable energy deployment faced by various stakeholders, to identify solutions for overcoming existing barriers and to share best practice and lessons learnt about the design and implementation of enabling policies, innovative financing solutions and tailor-made renewable energy systems.
The aim of the 9th Asia Clean Energy Forum is to share best practice among clean energy practitioners, experts in the field, stakeholders from the fields of government, academia, environmental regulation and civil society, as well as other development partners, in order to meet the region’s climate and energy security challenges. In addition to presentations on topics like accelerating energy efficiency, promoting renewable energy and maximizing energy access, the participants will also have the opportunity to exchange knowledge in six deep dive workshops that allow in-depth discussions and give the opportunity to learn both at a very technical and hands on level as well as at at a more macro level.
