FSR Online debate: Providing Energy Access in 2019 and the Road Ahead 11 March 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CET

06.03.2019

Universal access to clean and modern energy is one of the top energy challenges of our time. Significant progress has been achieved in the past years. However, based on the current trajectory, the IEA estimates that around 674 million inhabitants will continue to lack access to electricity in 2030. It is therefore imperative to ‘think big’, involve all the relevant stakeholders and remove barriers to massive electrification business models.

The 2nd online debate leading up to the FSR Global Forum discusses the following issues

  • What are the main barriers to massive electrification business models? How to remove them?
  • Is a “utility-like” business model the most adequate long-term approach for electricity supply to the population that lacks acceptable electricity access?

Speakers:

Laura Cozzi |Deputy Head – Office of the Chief Economist of the IEA

Salvatore Vinci | Deputy Director, Country Support and Partnerships Division – IRENA

Praveer Sinha | CEO & Managing Director – Tata Power

Moderator:

Ignacio Perez Arriaga | Professor – FSR, MIT and UPComillas
