The Inter­na­tion­al Cli­mate Ini­tia­tive (IKI) and the COBENEFITS team have invit­ed India, South Africa, Turkey, and Viet­nam to become COBENEFITS part­ner coun­tries. In addi­tion to that, the project car­ries out a num­ber of activ­i­ties in oth­er coun­tries around the world. Cli­mate and ener­gy poli­cies in the COBENEFITS part­ner coun­tries are cur­rent­ly at a cross­roads: with ener­gy demand increas­ing sharply, deci­sions on ener­gy invest­ments must now be made with the poten­tial to cre­ate path depen­den­cies that will endure for decades.
Co-ben­e­fits lend weight to the argu­ment in favour of increas­ing renew­able ener­gy gen­er­a­tion capac­i­ties. More­over, they can play a pos­i­tive role in fos­ter­ing tran­si­tions to sus­tain­able, cli­mate-friend­ly devel­op­ment pathways.

At the invi­ta­tion of the Amer­i­can Coun­cil on Ger­many (ACG), COBENEFITS project leader Sebas­t­ian Hel­gen­berg­er gave a series of talks in the US on the social ben­e­fits of renew­able ener­gies, shar­ing inter­na­tion­al expe­ri­ences from the COBENEFITS project as well as lessons learned from Germany’s Energiewende.
