On April 21, the practical webinar-workshop “100% renewable sources local governments in Zemgale” will take place. It is organised by the Riga Technical University Institute of Energy Systems and Environment, in cooperation with the Zemgale Regional Energy Agency and the Zemgale Planning Region.
In the Zemgale Planning Region, the share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the total energy balance is increasing every year, but is it possible to switch the whole region to 100% carbon-neutral energy generation and transport sector? Can we reduce the role of fossil energy sources and remove barriers to the use of solar, wind and other renewable energy sources? Researchers from the Institute of Energy Systems and Environment will present the results of system dynamics modelling on the potential of RES in the Zemgale Planning Region, as well as will invite participants to participate in the development of RES strategies for specific local governments in order to determine all the arguments why fossil energy source is still used in the Zemgale Region and Latvia.
Please apply by 20.04.2021 by filling out the REGISTRATION FORM shown below. Before the seminar, you will be sent a link for remote participate on the ZOOM platform (online).
Participation in the seminar is free of charge.
