Join the World Economic Forum, Accenture, Enel, Sempra and Hitachi ABB Power Grids in a discussion on maximising the system value of the energy transition.

Registration closes at 17:00 GMT on 20 January 2021

The traditional focus on the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) can no longer be the sole driving criteria for decision making on solutions to accelerate economic growth and a clean energy transition. The system value framework, developed by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with Accenture, more holistically evaluates economic, environmental, social, and technical outcomes of potential energy solutions. The framework aims to shift political and commercial focus beyond cost to include value. Policies, investments, and solutions can be evaluated to assess their impact on the outcomes that the electricity system of the future should support.

To demonstrate the framework, analyses were carried out across multiple diverse markets across the globe. While recovery solution areas differ by market, the framework enabled a holistic comparison of solutions across all contexts. In this webinar, the speakers will share how the system value framework was used to propose clean energy solutions in India, Europe, and the United States that would deliver the most important outcomes - maximising the most important system value elements - for these markets.
