Sustainable Energy Highlights

UNECE Resource Classification Week: Experts from the UNECE region, as well as from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, will gather in Geneva, 28 April-2 May for the EGRC fifth session to discuss the UNFC.

UNECE Group of Experts on Gas will hold its first meeting on 14-15 April 2014. The agenda includes a roundtable discussion of the findings of a major study of the global liquefied natural gas (LNG) markets, recently completed by leading experts in the natural gas industry. The study was prepared to establish a point of departure for robust discussion among government policy makers and other key stakeholders of needed policies and normative instruments, such as regulations or best practice guidance. An important conclusion of the study is that, under the right conditions, natural gas could be an essential contributor to a sustainable future and LNG could be the gateway to a global gas market. A press conference that will be held on 14 April at 14:00 will offer insights into opportunities and challenges that LNG faces to reach its full potential as an energy carrier.

Developing a common assessment methodology for renewable energy resources through application of UNFC: this was the focus of the UNECE Workshop in Washington, 24-25 March. The event was hosted by the World Bank and sponsored by BP, DuPont, Shell and Total, with participation from IRENA and Bloomberg New Energy Finance
