This was a follow-up to the two technical expert meetings (TEM) were held in March 2014 on on renewable energy deployment and energy efficiency improvements, which are critical for bridging the pre-2020 ambition gap. Parties called for a follow-up meeting after these meetings to look at the progress reached since March and discuss the way forward up to Lima to enhance mitigation ambition. The ADP Co-Chairs requested the secretariat to facilitate a follow-up meeting to take forward the exchange on renewable energy and energy efficiency.
The follow-up meeting was held on June 12 and focused on unlocking mitigation opportunities through renewable energy deployment and energy efficiency improvements in pre-2020 period.
At the TEM meeting, Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) and the Bridging the Gap Initiative were represented by Jonas Bleckmann from GIZ.
