Peter Droege addressed the Macao Green Finance Summit, 6-7 August 2021, on the need for a financial paradigm shift to attempt a halt to runaway climate change. The hope behind the initiative is to establish mechanisms for certified financial investment flows in sustainable infrastructure from and to the region, in the form of rated and monitored bonds. Professor Droege pushed for Macao as an international and regional showcase for sustainability practice.

Solar Decathlon Europe 2019 will take place in Szentendre, Hungary 22-24 July 2019.
The event unites the local government of Szentendre, EMI, a non-profit organisation for quality control and innovation in building, and BME, the Budapest University of Technology & Economics.
SDE19 in Szentendre will emphasize renovation simulation, providing a frame of existing buildings
that pose renovation challenges stemming from local urban factors.
The Solar Decathlon Europe is an international competition that challenges collegiate teams to design and build houses powered exclusively by the renewable energy sources: the main aim of competition is to promote of architectural solutions related to solar energy, renewable energies and innovative technologies through the houses built by the university teams.
As Special Advisor to the Renewables in Cities 2019 Global Status Report (REC-GSR), Peter Droege welcomes the first Preliminary Findings that has just been released.
The REC-GSR will map out the current trends and developments of renewable energy in cities. The report series aims to accelerate transformations to renewables in cities, support city commitments and inspire innovation in policy, financing and technology development. The preliminary findings serve as the basis for the first full report, to be released in September 2019.
17 November 2018. Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany
Peter Droege will chair this year’s 2018 European Solar Prize ceremony.
Since 1994 EUROSOLAR has recognized outstanding commitment in the field of renewable energy with the annual European Solar Prize. Ground-breaking projects and initiatives from all sectors of society are selected with the purpose of making pioneers and innovators the focus of public awareness and of giving fresh impetus to an energy turnaround that is decentralized and based on renewables.
Having previously been held in Prague, Barcelona and Vienna, this year’s edition of the European Solar Prize will be awarded in EUROSOLAR’S hometown of Bonn – within the framework of the 30th anniversary of EUROSOLAR and the associated annual partnership with the city of Bonn.
