Annual Report 2020-2021

In the past two years, REN21 has worked towards greater regionalisation with a focus on Africa and Southeast Asia. We have mobilised our efforts to create innovative formats for data and knowledge that meet the needs of decision makers. We have also successfully connected with highly strategic sectors like transport, heating/cooling, and cities. These sectors account for most of the total energy consumption. Transitioning them to renewables will have a rapid and significant impact on gas emissions.

Have a look at what our network has accomplished during the past two years. You will see that nothing can stop us.


The past two years have been busy, exciting and a period of exceptional growth for REN21. We continued  reporting on renewables annually; published the first edition of a brand-new series on Renewables in Cities; brought together our community at the REN21 Academy; convened the international renewables community at KIREC Seoul 2019, and more. We also expanded our team.

Our latest annual report is in a new format to reflect the changes here at REN21: an updated logo, more direct messaging, a new website and more.  The report highlights cooperation with our growing international network, breaks down funding, gives a sneak peek to 2020.
