    Transport and Climate Change Week 2022

    The logic behind our Transport and Climate Change Week is simple: we bring together experts and decision-makers from all around the world to facilitate knowledge sharing and networking through peer-to-peer exchange and specialised workshops. We do not only build capacities, but establish meaningful relations, which lie at the foundation of development cooperation.This way, we try to create confidence in the feasibility of changing transport. That it’s possible to change transport for the better.Since it was first held in 2017, the Transport and Climate Change Week has established as a successful format that enables dialogue, cooperation and exchange between developing countries and growing economies.With more than 500 participants, experts and trainers travelling to Berlin between 2017-2020, we lifted the event to a whole new level with the recent edition. In 2021, we brought together more than 1500 participants who exchanged and developed future solutions all together connected by the new digital possibilities and a virtual conference room.The Transport and Climate Change Week 2022 will connect the transport community around the globe opening the door for active participation in a hybrid format.With an engaging, interactive and thematically attractive central programme organised from Berlin, Africa, Asia, Latin America and South-East Europe we are providing the participants with forums for dialogue, forums for learning, peer-to-peer exchanges, inputs, trainings and networking opportunities.Feel free to get in touch with feedbacks, questions or ideas via transportweek@giz.de.The event is organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) financed by the International Climate Initiative (IKI).

    Introduction to 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy and Hourly Matching: What, Why and How

    Many cities, companies and institutions are taking steps to account for the carbon emissions caused by their energy use. But procuring renewable energy only during times when the sun is shining and the wind is blowing—at its cheapest—doesn’t necessarily result in a cleaner electricity system during those periods when wind and sun are in short supply.

    Forward-looking cities, companies and institutions have begun to embrace 24/7 carbon-free energy procurement—tracking their energy load temporally, shifting their demand, and purchasing carbon-free energy on an hourly basis to match their usage.

    This webinar will provide an introduction to the idea of hourly matching and 24/7 carbon-free energy procurement. It will address questions such as: What is 24/7 carbon-free energy? Why should a city, company, or other institution pursue it? And how can your jurisdiction begin to explore it?

    During this webinar—WRI’s first in a series of webinars on 24/7 carbon-free energy—experts will provide an overview of the current 24/7 carbon-free energy landscape. This will include presentations by representatives from the Council on Environmental Quality, Peninsula Clean Energy, and Princeton University’s ZERO lab, who will highlight 24/7 commitments and approaches, and illuminate pathways for others to explore 24/7 carbon-free energy. Time will be set aside at the end of the webinar for a Q&A with participants.

    Panelists:

    • Lori Bird – Director, U.S. Energy Program and Polsky Chair for Renewable Energy, World Resources Institute
    • Tanuj Deora – Director, Clean Energy, White House Council on Environmental Quality
    • Jan Pepper – Chief Executive Officer, Peninsula Clean Energy
    • Jesse Jenkins – Assistant Professor of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering and Andlinger Center for Energy & Environment, Princeton University

    • Lori Bird — Director, U.S. Energy Program and Polsky Chair for Renewable Energy, World Resources Institute
