Going Clean - What are the United Nations Framework Classification (UNFC) for Resources to Solar Energy?
Tuesday, 7 September 2021 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am BST
Clean energy is emerging as one of the key strategic industries of the 21st century, with global trade in solar and wind related products rivalling that of the trade in oil and gas. International trade in clean energy products and services represents a major opportunity for Global Britain to support our partners across the world in tackling climate change.
Going Clean aims to bring some clarity to how the clean energy sector is governed, looking at the structure of the markets, the intricacies of the supply chains, the geopolitics of trade, and the expert networks that drive deployment.
What will I learn?
