The Florence School of Regulation in conversation with Francesco La Camera, Director General of IRENA


This online event aims to present the upcoming International Renewable Energy Agency’s report “World Energy Transitions Outlook: 1.5°C Pathway” through a conversation with the Director General of the International Renewable Energy Agency, Francesco La Camera.

The World Energy Transitions Outlook (WETO), which was released in June 2021, outlines a pathway for the world to achieve the Paris Agreement goals and halt the pace of climate change by transforming the global energy landscape. The report identifies options to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C and bring CO2 emissions closer to net zero by 2050, offering high-level insights on technology choices, investment needs and the socio-economic contexts of achieving a sustainable, resilient and inclusive energy future.

After a presentation of the report by IRENA, the FSR Energy & Climate team will discuss the findings and insights from different perspectives.
