To achieve a global green transition, large investments are needed to scale and accelerate the solutions and projects to be implemented. Solid financing models are vital if the green political goals for the future are to be reached. In order to limit the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, the International Renewable Energy Agency estimates that global annual investments in renewable energy have to double from around EUR 280 billion per year today to EUR 635 billion per year towards 2030. IRENA, the Danish Embassy in Abu Dhabi and State of Green are organizing this GREEN TALK to discuss potential climate investment models and the platform IRENA has launched to scale up climate action and translate ambitious national climate targets into concrete investments on the ground, the Climate Investment Platform.
