12 May 2014 - 16 May 2014
The Forth Asia-Africa Sustainable Energy Forum will bring together stakeholders from scientific and policy communities in Africa and Asia to discuss questions pertaining to research and innovation, establishing energy partnerships, and the on-going energy transition.
RPV (Risk, Policy, and Vulnerability Program) Researcher Nadejda Komendantova will speak at the Forth Asia-Africa Sustainable Energy Forum under the patronage of the Algerian Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, taking place in May 2014 in Oran, Algeria. Her talk entitled "Governance of energy transition based on deployment of renewable energy sources in Middle East and North African region (MENA)" will open the first plenary session attended by the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research of Algeria, representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Algeria, the Governor of Oran and the Ambassador of Japan to Algeria.
Nadejda Komendantova will speak about the potential of renewables for energy transition globally and the benefits of deployment of renewable energy sources for the MENA region as well as about on-going efforts at international, national and local levels to deploy renewable energies. The deployment efforts do not sum up to a coordinated governance approach and the energy transition in MENA requires not only technical and economic capabilities but also an understanding of governance of the transition process, including decision-making, institutional structure, uncertainties, acceptance and risk perceptions of different stakeholders.
