Webinar Towards Decarbonising Transport

Don’t miss a joint webinar of REN21, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and Agora Verkehrswende 22 January at 14:00 CEST. The webinar will present the main conclusions of the joint report “Towards Decarbonising Transport 2018 – A Stocktake on Sectoral Ambition in the G20”.   The report provides a clear picture of the state of G20 transport emissions, analyses already existing approaches for decarbonising the transport sector, and stresses the urgency of putting ambitious climate action on the political agenda. It includes fact sheets on each G20 member that shed light on the specific situation in each country, including goals and efforts in decarbonising transport.   To register click here.  

Launch of SADC Report 2018

REN21, in cooperation with UNIDO and SACREEE, has published the second edition of the SADC Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Status Report! The 2018 edition builds on the initial report issued in 2015 and provides an updated review of renewable energy and energy efficiency developments in the SADC region, as well as, an outlook on opportunities and perspectives in meeting the region’s need for accessible, clean and sustainable energy. Since 2015 the SADC region has seen an increase in the number and quality of its renewable energy and energy efficiency policies. By mid-2018, the SADC region had 21,760 MW of installed renewable energy capacity with another 17,361 MW of renewables capacity reaching financial closure and awaiting commissioning.   The report is available in English, French and Portuguese.   For more information, click here.      

Participate in REN21’s Asia and the Pacific RE Status Report!

Be a part of what-will-be REN21’s first regional status report for the Asian continent.   This report will map the current range of renewable energy development across the region; showcasing these to decision makers, global investors and potential promoters of renewables.   Asia is Earth’s largest and most populous continent. It covers an area equivalent to approximately 30% of Earth’s total land area and is home to around 60% of the world’s population. Understanding the uptake of renewables and energy efficiency across this vast region is central to the global energy transformation. We are looking for contributors to share insights about renewable energy developments in Asian countries, across sub-regions, relevant technology and activities. There are many ways to participate: contributing data, acting as a peer reviewer, being interviewed, etc., depending on your expertise!   Click here if you are interested.   REN21 has joined forces with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia-Pacific (UNESCAP) to produce this regional report.  

Decarbonising Transport: G20 report

CO2 emissions from transport are still rising. If immediate action is not taken, more radical measures will be unavoidable in the future. This is the top line conclusion from the newly released joint report by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), REN21 and the Berlin-based think-tank Agora Verkehrswende. Titled Towards Decarbonising Transport – A 2018 Stocktake on Sectoral Ambition in the G20, this new report provides a summary for each G20 nation, including data on CO2 emission trends in the national transport sector, climate policy targets and measures for lowering emissions. The data make clear that only three countries from the G20 have set targets for reducing emissions in the transport sector: Germany, France and Japan.

GSR2018 now launched!

This year’s Renewables 2018 Global Status Report GSR reveals two realities: one in which a revolution in the power sector is driving rapid change towards a renewable energy future, and another in which the overall transition is not advancing with the speed needed.   Click here to access the GSR 2018 microsite where you can read all about specific market, investment and policy development. The site allows you to read the full report on-line and link directly to all the references, you can even translate the site into another language. A separate link allows you to download the full report as a PDF if that is your preferred option. There is also a link to the Highlights 2018 document which outlines the broad trends that defined the renewables sector in 2018. Click here to get started.

Time of Transition: Joint report to drive RE uptake

Policy frameworks need to take a systems approach with more fully integrated policies across sectors if we are serious about achieving the energy transition. To do this:   measures are needed to support the integration of variable renewable energy policies need to be more comprehensive than those devised for the energy sector alone These are two key conclusions from this latest report on Renewable Energy Policies in a Time of Transition   Renewables have experienced a remarkable evolution over the past decade now forming the cutting edge –with energy efficiency– of a global energy transition. The growth in the deployment of renewable energy technologies now outpaces that of any other energy source.   But progress has not been homogenous. Uneven uptake, barriers ranging from technology and financial risks, and integration challenges in markets with high shares of renewables persist.   This new joint publication of REN21, the IEA and IRENA outlines the options available to policy makers to support the development of renewables.  An updated policy classification and terminology provides a global reference for policy instruments.  The final chapter, “The Way Forward” proposes a holistic approach for policy making.
