The Webinar Series program facilitated engagement with key government, industry, finance and innovation stakeholders on a variety of pertinent topics across the clean energy and sustainability sectors.

Continuous investment in renewable energy projects and sustainable development has demonstrated the importance of aligning the economic recovery along with addressing climate change challenges and the priorities set by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

These webinars examined the biggest opportunities ahead and bring together the key players driving the green recovery agenda.


The New Energy Economy

As the UN Sustainable Development Goals take on increasing significance, what role can the clean energy sector play in helping countries meet different SDGs beyond affordable and clean energy? Can hybrid, clean energy approaches – in particular using solar, wind, hydrogen and storage - become the new energy economy? This webinar explored how countries can continue to invest in their clean energy aspirations, where new growth will come from, and investigate the growing importance of hybrid approaches.

  • The direct and indirect influence of clean energy on SDGs
  • Government priorities for clean energy projects
  • Reviewing ongoing energy investments, with a focus on hydrogen and storage
  • Clean energy technology innovations driving development and efficiency
  • The outlook for solar projects in the region - what's next and which are moving forward

Stimulating Economies: Low carbon is ‘Business as Usual

International companies are increasingly declaring their targets to reduce their emissions and become net zero carbon businesses. As the New Energy Economy ushers in an era of low-carbon government, how do companies play their role? This webinar explored how major businesses set targets, how aggressive these should be, how practices could change and what business opportunities and investment this will bring.

  • Hear how different industries are planning to reduce their emissions
  • What groundwork and planning is needed to become net zero
  • How ambitious should targets be, and who should be involved?
  • What must companies consider when tackling scope 3 emissions?
  • Clean energy technology innovations driving development and efficiency

Restoring Circular Economy Focus in the Aftermath of Global Developments

Focusing on the circular economy of waste, the webinar explored new value chains within waste, the benefits of recycling and the changing approaches to dealing with waste, including drivers to reduce single-use plastic and how technology will increasingly influence decisions taken in the sector.

  • Strategies for the adoption of the circular economy model
  • Integration of modern technology into waste management
  • Minimising waste production
  • Improving recycling and re-use rates

Decarbonising GCC Water Networks

As the region's water use increases, not just for its populations and industries but also in support of agriculture, as countries push to increase their food security, how do governments also get more efficiency from water? The webinar explored opportunities for decarbonising water supply in the region, through use of lower energy technologies such as reverse osmosis, the future role of renewables in desalination, and how to maximise water reuse.

  • Building sector resilience using renewable energy
  • Maximising the use of recycled water to optimise resources
  • Leveraging the latest technology to help further improve water efficiency
