A very regular exchange with the energy community in California in particular and the United States overall led to RGI creating its work stream ‘Energy Regions in Transition’ in 2015. It aims at bringing together energy experts from countries that are currently going through or preparing for an energy transition. Under this banner, RGI organised a learning journey to America for the second time in 2016, this time with an agenda spanning both New York and California, the leading states of the American energy transition. A report detailing the discussions we had with the New York Public Service Commission, ConEdison, National Grid, the Nature Conservancy, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, CAISO, Tesla and many others, is now available on our website. Click here download it and find out more ‘Energy Regions in Transition’.
Under the same banner we will also organise a one-week tour to China later this year. The country is moving fast in curbing its use of fossil fuels, reducing dependency on energy imports and investing in innovative energy technology.
Look for more info on this endeavour in our upcoming newsletters and this website.
