About the partner:
Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO) is a non-governmental international organization which works towards promoting the establishment of a global energy interconnection system (GEI) to meet the global demand for electricity in a clean and green way, as well as to implement the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All initiative.
To disseminate knowledge and improve the understanding of low carbon development, the more extensive use of renewable energy resources and a clean energy trading mechanism that can support the implementation of the Paris Agreement.
At COP24, GEIDCO promoted an action plan to scale up Global Energy Interconnection (GEI) in support of the goals of the Paris Agreement. The GEI Action Plan combines clean energy generation capacity, modern transmission technologies and power grid interconnectivity to enable future expansion of electrification and renewable energies.
The organization based in Beijing held three events at the conference, where it also established a Think Tank Alliance made up of 28 research institutions from 13 countries to provide support for the development of GEI.
Events at COP24:
