Current APEC data and studies indicate a limited proportion of renewable energy in most developed and developing economies. Future energy systems will require high proportions of renewable and clean energy, yet policy is often developed and implemented separately, risking sub-optimal outcomes for government, consumers and business.
A two-day multistakeholder dialogue held on 12 and 13 May 2021 brought officials in renewable and clean energy sector, representatives from the private and academic sectors and other stakeholders to discuss how to support market-driven solutions that deliver integrated energy services to consumers and build the environment. The event also strived to identify renewable energy/fossil energy linkages and suggest draft clean energy legislation models which support the linkages. This summary report includes proceedings of the dialogue, discussions and recommendations.
