Parallel Events Programme

Solar Road Mapping: Transition to Action

13:30 - 15:00 | 15:15 - 16:45
As many countries enhance their share of renewable energy, and especially solar photovoltaics, it is necessary to set ambitious yet realistic targets, and more important, to lay out the Roadmap to reach these targets.  This is especially true for ‘emerging solar’ countries which are expanding their energy systems, and will rely increasingly on solar energy.  This Parallel Event, conducted in co-operation with the International Solar Alliance (ISA), will include talks by global PV leaders and policy planners describing the formulation of Solar Roadmaps for a country.  It will also include examples of such roadmapping processes for some selected countries, and a Panel Discussion session.  The focus of the event will be on pragmatic and concrete actions that can help to trigger solar (PV) deployment efforts in specific country contexts. The Event will be conducted as a hybrid event, with many in-person participants, but also allowing remote participants, who are interested in formulating such Roadmaps for their countries, to join.

Jointly organised by the Roadmapping PV Committee
