After conducting in-depth interviews, conferences and workshops to gather input from a wide variety of experts, WEF and KPMG introduced their research and findings in a whitepaper, Accelerating Sustainable Energy Innovation, followed by a briefing paper focused on six of the key proposals.
In order to help turn recommendations into action, WEF and KPMG are discussing the findings with a broad range of stakeholders in the global energy ecosystem, including investors, innovators, multilaterals and governments. Among their primary efforts is to establish the first global Sustainable Energy Innovation Fund (SEIF) blending public and private financing.
See below for more of WEF and KPMG’s proposals, as well as other resources focused on supporting global sustainable energy solutions.
The following six bold ideas, contained in the whitepaper Accelerating Sustainable Energy Innovation, were selected from a long list of options based on the highest level of interest from experts within the energy ecosystem.
This project has helped raise the profile of sustainable energy innovation and its critical importance to the climate change agenda. This in turn, we hope, will encourage greater collaboration and interaction between the investment and innovation communities.
