The Alliance for Rural Electrification and Green People’s Energy are organising the third webinar titled "Regulation & Policies to Achieve a Clean Energy Transition with Decentralised Renewable Energy" at 14.00-15.30 CEST on 13 October 2021 under their joint PWCET Series initiative.

Fuelled by decentralised renewable energy (DRE) solutions, the energy sector is evolving rapidly and undergoing a disruptive transformation. This ongoing energy transition is a central building block to a secure, environmentally-friendly, and economically successful supply of universal access to modern energy services. It is crucial that their integration is timely to achieve other interlinked Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) such as healthcare, livelihoods, water and education.

The objective of this webinar to bring together experts from Germany and different regions from Africa to discuss effective regulatory and policy development mechanisms and the shortcomings that are relevant for the wider rollout of DRE solutions to ensure a just and clean energy transition.
