Climate Compatible Growth November 2023 courses

Climate Compatible Growth November 2023 courses

This collection is developed by a set of important UN and International Organizations together with the Climate Compatible Growth (#CCG) program. They focus on simple toolkits used to develop energy balances; energy projections; energy investment; emissions and renewable integration modelling; integrated Climate, Land, Energy, and Water modelling; system of systems modelling; and basic energy infrastructure financing.

Climate Compatible Growth (#CCG) is a UK government, ODA-funded research programme supporting investment in sustainable energy and transport systems to meet development priorities.  

We believe in partnership. These courses are open to all and we invite you to join us as we join with others to develop capacity for better evidence-based policy making with analysts and academics from across the world. The tools are open source and have been developed by forward-looking organizations, who know the importance of community accessibility, continuous improvement, and accountability.  

We believe that the future needs to be co-created with open minds and with shared knowledge and tools. Alone you can go fast, together we can go far. Please watch the video below for an introduction to the purpose and importance of these courses.  It is recommended that you hold down the Crtl button on your keyboard and click on the link below to open it in a new window.
