Falling RE costs: How Can Modellers Keep up?

13 May 2019 |Bonn, Germany


This workshop was organised by IRENA and IEA PVPS, and targeted leading international and local renewable experts with the aim to facilitate access to the most recent costs and cost reduction potential analysis that can inform energy modelling.The event focused on solar and wind technologies and their recent costs estimates as well as their cost reduction potential.

The workshop enabled a more profound understanding of challenges and solutions in collecting, analysing and utilising cost data in renewable energy modelling and other policy related activities. Other topics covered included the status-quo and future opportunities to collaborate on cost assessment work and know-how in technology collaboration.

IRENA presented preliminary findings from the cost reduction potential analytical work in G20 and learning curve analysis to receive expert feedback.
