Mapping the Critical Path | June 18th - 20th 2019, The Netherlands.

In 2019 Sustainable Energy for ALL (SEforALL) will convene a series of intensive planning and mapping meetings (charets) focused on ensuring that we can increase the speed and scale of progress along the critical path to SDG7. With 2020 on the horizon and with the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit scheduled for September 2019 these meetings will bring together the partners in the movement across communities, civil society, finance, the private sector and government who are leading change. Each Charet will involve small groups of leaders in their field, bringing their real-world perspective to address specific challenges of the 21st Century energy transition. The aim of these meetings is to clearly identify what works and act to scale the solutions. The Charets will be deliberately different in feel from a Forum but they will still act as a focus for the SEforALL movement.

  • EVIDENCE: How good is the evidence we use to plot the critical path towards SDG7? What evidence are we missing? How do we better communicate the evidence to support fast action?.
  • FINANCE: What are the current flows of finance to support the speeding of energy transitions? What can be done to secure flows? Can we identify financial innovation that can scale? How can new capital be introduced to solutions for SDG7?
  • ACTION: Coordinating action within the SEforALL movement among hubs, accelerators and delivery partners.

Each Charet will also address MOVEMENT EXPANSION: As energy services are understood as fundamental to achievement of other SDGs, from health, to education, to food security, to the rights of displaced people, how do we continue to grow the movement for Sustainable Energy for All and how do we continue to amplify the voices of those in the last mile? The results of these important charets will also inform the movements input to the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit and the next Sustainable Energy for All Forum which will be held in Africa in 2020.
