Long-term energy scenarios (LTES) for developing national clean energy transition plans in Asia

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is pleased to announce that it will host a regional webinar series on national long-term energy scenarios in Asia, in collaboration with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).

As part of IRENA’s Long-term Energy Scenarios (LTES) Network’s ongoing initiatives, the series provides a platform to exchange knowledge, and collect good practices and experiences from government energy planners in Asia in the development and use of long-term energy scenarios to guide national energy plans in the clean energy transition. This will be the third series of its kind, following regional webinars focused on Latin America and the Caribbean, and on Africa.

The seminars will explore the topic around the three main themes shown below:
