Energy Working Group: Webinars
Our webinar series provide detailed information and trainings on successful low-emissions energy development planning tools, methodologies, programs, and policies being implemented around the world.
Energy Low-Emission Development Strategies: A Regional Overview of Africa and Experiences from Cape Verde and Kenya
The Africa LEDS Partnership (AfLP) and the Energy Working Group (EWG) of the Low-Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP) co-hosted a webinar on sustainable energy progress in Africa. The webinar offered both an overview of recent developments in clean energy policies, programs, and targets across the region and in-depth case studies on Kenya’s and Cape Verde’s experiences in creating innovative, climate-compatible energy development approaches. Presenters outlined the targets, policy objectives, and implementation programs of these two leading African countries, providing insights into challenges encountered and how they were overcome.

Best Practices in Gathering and Using Energy Data for LEDS Development
Accessible, reliable, and up-to-date data are critical in Low-Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) energy planning. Unfortunately, policymakers often struggle with significant data gaps. This webinar presented an overview of the importance of energy data collection, best practices, and strategies for linking data collection and LEDS development processes. Valuable insights into data collection and use were presented by both REN21, a global leader in compiling, analyzing, and disseminating renewable energy data and information for its flagship publication, the annual Renewables Global Status Report, and ECREEE, a specialized agency of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) whose mandate is the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
