REmap 2030 is launched!
REmap 2030 is a roadmap to double the share of renewable energy by 2030, and is the first study of global renewable energy potential to be based on data from official governmental sources.
The roadmap encompasses 26 countries representing more than two-thirds of current energy demand. In determining the potential to scale up renewables, the study not only focuses on technologies, but also on the availability of financing, political will, skills, and the role of planning.
Some of the key findings include:
- The global renewable energy share can reach and exceed 30% by 2030.
- The share of modern renewables will more than triple – and even quadruple in absolute terms.
- Each country has a different role to play in the global doubling of renewables.
- Transitioning towards renewable energy is possible at negligible additional costs.
- When socio-economic benefits are taken into account, the result is a net savings.
- Renewables growth needs to take place across all four sectors of energy use: buildings, transport, industry, and electricity.
- The doubling of renewables will mostly offset coal consumption.
- Markets and policymakers both play crucial roles.
- International cooperation will enable a surge in renewable energy worldwide.
In the coming months the full report will be released along with individual country studies.
