IRENA’s “Long-term Energy Scenarios Network” (LTES Network) provides a platform for national and regional energy scenario practitioners to share experience and good practices in using and developing scenarios. As of mid-2021, the network gathers 25 country members and 10 technical partners and has hosted over 30 events.
In its first year, the LTES Network organised a 1st webinar series that featured its members and technical partners. Following the series’ success, the 2nd round of webinars will feature new members and partners who have joined since 2020.
The series of webinars will focus on three main themes, which have critical underlying questions to be explored in each session:
• Strengthening scenario development – How can scenarios be developed to better account for potentially transformational changes?
• Improving scenario use – How can scenarios be better used for strategic decision-making by governments and investors?
• Identifying capacity building approaches – What approaches can enhance institutional capacity for scenario planning?
This webinar series will showcase members’ and partners’ experiences adding to the Network’s repository of governmental and institutional practices in the field that was initiated in the first series in 2018-2019, and complemented by experiences showcased in LTES Network events.
