We are familiar with the enormous importance of solar power in combatting climate change and transitioning to a decarbonized economy in coming decades. But beyond protecting the climate and safeguarding the environment, the trajectory towards solar offers a host of other benefits: solar energy is vital not only for the Planet, but also for People and Prosperity.
The Global Solar Council Virtual Forum is a two-day online event showcasing the enormous potential of solar power to bring about a clean, fair and sustainable future and enable quality employment in all regions of the world, from cities to rural communities. Through a series of virtual sessions, the Global Solar Council will explore the vital contribution that solar photovoltaics (PV) can make – and in many cases is already making – towards achieving the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement and a wide range of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event will offer policy and industry insights into the kind of integrated action that needs to become a common playbook for a decade of action.
As an extension of this theme and in collaboration with SolarPower Europe, the GSC Virtual Forum will take a close look at the state of solar PV in Africa and the outlook for the continent’s key markets, continuing the Global Solar Council’s focus on emerging solar markets in 2020, which has spanned Latin America and South East Asia.
