This innovation challenge is powered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in South Africa under its Climate Promise initiative, with the support of the Government of Japan and in partnership with the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship.
The problem we face is that the use of fossil fuels is driving and exacerbating climate change. To address this issue, we need to transition to renewable energy sources for all.
This transition is essential as renewable energy can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
By replacing fossil fuels with clean energy technologies such as solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal power, we can improve air quality, enhance energy security, create job opportunities, and provide access to affordable energy.
Do you have an innovative solution that will impact the Future of Energy?
We need solutions to:
Transitioning to and adopting renewable energy
Improve energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gasses.
Carbon pricing and carbon tax structures
Electric Vehicles and clean personal transport solutions.
National and international cooperation and agreement adoption.
Impact financing and catalytic funding enabling renewable energy for all.
