Call for International Training Workshop on Renewable Energy Policies and Low-carbon Development in Belt & Road Countries



Lack of power supply still remains a huge challenge for many countries in the world. Green energy generation is the most promising way to achieve sustainable development. Many countries are endowed with abundant resources of biomass energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, and hydropower, all of which can be converted into energy for rural production and living through appropriate technologies. More and more countries realize the importance of renewable energy development in national energy strategy.

The International Training Workshop on Renewable Energy Policies and Low-carbon Development in Belt & Road Countries aims to enhance the capacity for green and low-carbon development and help train technical professionals. Meanwhile, we will also explore new models for deepening scientific and technological cooperation. The workshop is open to policy-makers, researchers in strategic research and policy design, association and NGO members in OBOR countries.

This workshop will introduce China's renewable energy policy and industry development, analyze the common problems encountered during the development of renewable energy, share experiences in renewable energy technology, policy, management and industrialization. Thus, this workshop will promote technological and industrial cooperation with OBOR countries in the field of renewable energy and green and low-carbon development, and facilitate the construction of green and low-carbon community for OBOR countries.
