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.

EUROSOLAR holds its 15th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2021) on March 16-18, 2021 as global web summit. This allows scientists all over the world to participate.
The IRES conference is dedicated to scientific findings on storage systems in the world of smart and distributed energy resources – its central focus on storage technology encompasses also legal, policy, network and market aspects. IRES provides a coherent overview of energy storage technologies that can enable the global transition towards the decarbonisation of economies through distributed and ubiquitous renewable energy systems.
Ibada Ahmed has joined us as International Advisor for Africa, to collaborate on innovations in sustainable development, multilateral partnership solutions, the role of sustainable infrastructure, responsible capital investment, purposeful human development and community empowerment.

The European Solar Prize 2020 was awarded to nine laureates fighting for the energy revolution. EUROSOLAR awarded the European Solar Prize to actors from seven different nations.
People from all over the continent came together in front of their screens to celebrate the most courageous and visionary renewable energy projects Europe’s citizens have to offer. Politicians and scientists, artists and entrepreneurs gathered to listen to inspiring speeches, learn about outstanding projects and enjoy the show.
LISD has proudly commenced to award the first round of Liechtenstein REED / TEA-LP Scholarships to three qualified candidates at the Ethiopian Institute of Technology-Mekelle (Mekelle University). The Scholarships were conceived and developed by the Liechtenstein Institute for Strategic Development during 2018-2020 and are provided through the generosity of the Liechtenstein Government, with additional support secured from UK Aid Direct, the British Department for International Development. The academic program development framework is provided by LISD’s partner, The Energy Access – Learning Program (TEA-LP) of the African Climate and Development Initiative (ACDI) at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
16-17 September 2020, Bonn, Germany
Prof. Peter Droege, Director of LISD, presents at the United Nations Conventions to Combat Desertification Stakeholders virtual meeting, with Mr. Holger Johannes Schoenherr, SUN farming, on the topic of “People, Power, Water, Food and Land – Practical Solutions and New Policy Mandates for the Rural-Urban Nexus”.
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.
