KIREC SEOUL 2019 image

KIREC is the first IREC to have a dedicated track on cities given the central roles cities play in renewable energy uptake and their importance in implementing national policies. The IREC consists of high-level plenary sessions, interactive parallel sessions and plenty of time to network and learn. WindPower Nepal CEO, Mr Kushal Gurung, was invited as a Keynote Speaker for the session “How Can We Ensure that Rural Areas Get Access to Renewable Energy to Improve Livelihoods”, at the 8th International Renewable Energy Conference (KIREC SEOUL 2019), organized jointly by the Korea Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) & Seoul Metropolitan Government, together with REN21, from Oct 23-25, 2019. There were around 3000 participants from 108 countries, including Mr Ban ki Moon, former UN secretary general and a renowned Climate Change Activist, who pointed out that achieving SDGs and Paris Agreement are the two biggest challenges that humanity have ever faced.
