This webinar, organised by REN Alliance and IRENA will explore case studies and study how 100% renewable energy supply is possible and how to create synergies between renewable energy sources.

Under the umbrella of the REN Alliance, the International Geothermal Association (IGA). International Hydropower Association (IHA), International Solar Energy Society (ISES), World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) and World Bioenergy Association (WBA), are pleased to be teaming up with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), to offer a webinar on ” Sustainable technology integration towards 100% renewable energy – Case studies”. This webinar is a result of a side-event the REN Alliance partners held at the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Bonn Climate Change Conference 2014 on 11 June. This webinar will explore how 100% renewable energy supply is possible based on case studies of how renewable energy technologies are working together already and the real costs of renewable energy. The presentations will be followed by questions and answers with the panelist and audience.
