Financing was provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the German FederalMinistryforEconomicAffairsandEnergy(BMWi),andthe United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO). A large share of the research for this report was conducted on a voluntary basis. The UN Secretary-General’s initiative Sustainable Energy for All mobilises global action to achieve universal access to modern energy services, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency, and double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix by 2030. REN21’s Renewables 2015 Global Status Report contributes to this initiative by demonstrating the role of renewables in increasing energy access. A section on distributed renewable energy—based on input from local experts primarily from developing countries—illustrates how renewables are providing needed energy services and contributing to a better quality of life through the use of modern cooking, heating/cooling, and electricity technologies. As the newly launched Decade for Sustainable Energy for All (2014– 2024) unfolds, REN21 will work closely with the SE4ALL initiative towards achieving its three objectives.
