Rising to the Global Energy Challenge

February 15, 2017 | 15:00 ET, 20:00 GMT

"Rising to the Global Energy Challenge” will be a dynamic session to present key findings of a new World Bank Group report, Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE). RISE, the first policy scorecard of its kind, assesses the investment climate in 111 countries in three key areas: energy access, energy efficiency and renewable energy. Overall, many countries are embracing the sustainable energy policy agenda, but more needs to be done if we are to reach ambitious global energy and climate goals.

After the report is presented, there will be an interactive session looking at what countries can do to create a favorable climate for public and private investment in the renewable energy sector. Rachel Kyte, CEO of Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All), and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All and, Riccardo Puliti, Senior Director and Head of Energy and Extractives at the World Bank, will host the event.
