Location: Online Webinar

Access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy is a key Sustainable Development Goal, part of Global Goal 7. Achieving it requires scale up of the manufacture and distribution of new energy technologies, things like clean cookstoves and DC microgrids. But not all technology is created equally. Ensuring that new solutions deliver on their promises to improve health, livelihoods and the environment requires appropriate international standards. Designing those standards requires new approaches and a deep understanding of market needs. In this webinar, we will:

  •     Explore new approaches to standards development
  •     Introduce opportunities for new energy standards
  •     Highlight the impact that standards are having by presenting the ongoing work to improve clean cooking technology

The presenters are:

Ranyee Chiang
Alliance for Clean Cookstoves

Dr. Priya Ranjan Mishra
Philips India
