The National Investment Authority is participating in a symposium to discuss emissions and energy use.
On Wednesday, the National Initiative for Energy Support and Emissions Reduction Committee’s team participated in an expanded dialogue symposium organized by the Media and Communications Commission in the Media Hall at the University of Baghdad.
The symposium was attended by parliamentarians, government officials, media representatives, volunteers from civil society organizations, and representatives from various governorates. The event focused on the importance of media and community awareness and education regarding the risks of emissions and climate change. It was highlighted that clean energy is the only solution to get rid of these risks, and it is necessary to mobilize efforts to enact a law to support renewable energy. The government prioritizes renewable energy and provides support to promote it.
The symposium revealed that reputable companies contribute about 7,500 megawatts of clean energy to the national grid.
The National Investment Authority is committed to promoting investment in renewable energy and collaborating with the Ministry of Environment and Electricity and other relevant authorities in establishing such projects. The aim is to encourage using clean energy in various investment projects, including solar panels, energy-efficient lighting, solar water heaters, thermal insulation, electric cars, and waste-to-energy projects.
