The facts are clear: the transformation of the power sector continues, but large energy consuming sectors of heating, cooling and transport can no longer be ignored. To fight climate change and ensure clean energy access for all, energy consumption in all end-use sectors must be addressed. We need YOUR help in getting the word out. Support our Thunderclap campaign to drive the global energy transition. On 4 June REN21 will launch its Renewables 2018 Global Status Report, providing the most up-to-date information on the status of renewables, vital for the decision making of the future steps in the right direction. We want this campaign to be global. By clicking here the campaign will post exactly ONE tweet on your behalf, 4 June. The tweet is: RE power sector is booming but we can’t ignore heating/cooling/transport if we are to save the climate & meet SDGs. Contribute to a world that is fuelled by renewables; Let’s get the word out!
