Breaking Barriers with Distributed Solar: Illuminating the Global South’s Energy Landscape
Distributed solar PV is an important solution to drive an inclusive global energy transition while creating extensive socioeconomic benefits. However, most of distributed solar PV’s potential is untapped. This event will discuss how to unleash the benefits of distributed solar PV in countries across the world. Although much focus is on the rapid decarbonization of the world’s energy systems, we can’t forget that in many countries in the Global South energy access remains a huge challenge. This event will discuss how solar power can be an important solution to simultaneously meet the objectives of decarbonization and energy access, the development of energy communities for a people-powered energy transition, and how it can support sustainable development. GSC will launch their updated report on distributed solar PV at this event.
