Host: Mission Innovation Chinese Secretariat

The power sector accounts for about a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions and almost
40% of global energy-related CO2 emissions. In 2021, the renewable power generation led by
wind and solar energy reached 3657.2TWh, with a year-on-year growth rate of 17%, accounting
for more than half of the global power generation growth in the past two years. In response to
the decarbonization challenges and growth in market demand for green low-carbon
technologies represented by renewable energy, there is an urgent need for the world to take
concerted and vigorous action to provide innovative solutions to the key technology, policy
regulation, investment and financing bottlenecks encountered in building a safe, efficient and
economic low-carbon power system.

The workshop brings together senior representatives from governments, international
organizations, leading companies and academic institutions to engage in a cloud-based dialogue
on the second phase of Mission Innovation to promote a high proportion of global renewable
energy applications. The conference will review innovative actions achieved in China Under
Mission Innovation, and join forces together with GPFM members, to discuss and exchange
global R&I innovation priorities and deployment in the field of green power from 2022 to 2024.
