    About the GSR: As the world's only crowd-sourced report on renewable energy, it is truly in a class of its own. It covers policies, markets, and much more, while telling the most up-to-date global story on renewable energy. 

    Over 200 people around the world have been working to bring you this report, an annual snapshot of renewable energy around the world. It is a collaborative effort of expert and amateur volunteers contributing data, reviewing chapters and co-authoring the report. 

    Since 2005, the GSR has worked with its many contributors to put the spotlight on ongoing developments and emerging trends that shape the future of renewable energy.

    Join us on 15 June to be the first to find out the latest information on renewables globally.

16 June 2021
  • ACEF: From Rhetoric to Reality: Tracking the Global Progress of Renewables

    16 June 2021  14:00 - 15:30

    Where to meet: Online

    REN21 is hosting a side event at the Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) 2021.

    Renewable energy provides clean, affordable energy. But what is more important for citizens, businesses and governments is improved air quality and health outcomes, availability of jobs, avoiding stranded assets and ensuring reliable access to energy. But how do we know if we are on the path to this clean energy future? One clear indicator can be used as a compass: the share of renewable energy in the overall energy mix. 

    Through presentations and discussion participants will look at:

    • Key renewable energy trends and developments globally and across Asia

    • The role of renewable energy in achieving socio-economic benefits in Asia

    • How the share of renewable energy can be used to track progress

    This workshop will show the status of the energy transition to renewables globally and in Asia and the Pacific. It will bring together participants from government, industry, civil society and research, giving them room to discuss 1) main political and social barriers to clean energy systems in Asia and 2) the way that measuring how much energy is supplied by renewables can be a proxy for tracking progress.  

    Guests:  

    • Ayu Abdullah, Energy Action Partners
    • David Elzinga, ADB
    • Peter Lundberg, Asia Pacific Urban Energy Associations
    • Mika Ohbayashi, Renewable Energy Institute
    • Ksenia Petrichenko, UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific

  • Citizens Energy Congress

    16 June 2021  17:00 - 18:00

    Where to meet: Online

    Rana Adib will comment on the panel discussion titled, "Achieving cost parity: balancing the future energy mix with renewables and powering the energy transition". This session will gather expert insights on the evolving landscape of the world’s energy mix, how to decarbonise the power sector and how renewable energy is increasing its role in the world’s energy mix.  

    It is estimated that 75% of new global solar and onshore wind capacity will produce electricity cheaper than any hydrocarbons. Is there a place for decarbonising oil and gas or should the industry focus its attention and investment on the switch to renewables? Concurrently, it is estimated that renewables power generation will spur renewable growth, but what does a net-zero power sector look like? How to guarantee stability, security and affordability of a decarbonised power sector? How to develop renewables at the pace and scale needed to meet the world’s energy needs?

    This session will gather expert insights on the evolving landscape of the world’s energy mix, how to decarbonise the power sector and how renewable energy is increasing its role in the world’s energy mix.

    2020 has been a year like no other. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted lives, livelihoods, and communities around the globe. We are since dealing with a crisis that is turning economies upside down, while simultaneously dealing with the increasing impacts of the climate and ecological emergency. Governments must act to secure a more resilient, healthy, and sustainable future – and they must act now. COP26 is scheduled to take place from Monday 1st November – Friday 12th November 2021 in Glasgow. What can we expect from the 2021 Summit? Why is COP26 important? As we enter the critical decade of climate action, the time for action is now. In order to achieve a resilient and zero carbon future – every stakeholder must play their part.

  • Higher Education for the Energy Transition Approaches, Resources and Next Steps

    30 June 2021  15:00 - 16:30

    Where to meet: Online

    We urgently need to scale up the workforce and awareness needed for a clean energy transition. This requires increasing access to renewable energy learning opportunities and strengthening curricula. Educators in all disciplines can help students understand the opportunities and massive growth in clean energy careers. We need bold efforts in education and workforce training to educate a new generation of energy professionals, reskill the current workforce and create informed consumers.

    Are educators at all levels including information on the clean energy transition? Are current education systems adapting to the needs for knowledge and skills development for new jobs in the renewable energy sector? Are employers getting the talent they need and what expectations do they have?  

    This webinar brings together panelists at the forefront of renewable energy education and training to share innovative approaches to skill building. It is useful for anyone interested in building capacity for the clean energy future we all need. We will discuss challenges and solutions. Participants will receive resources, successful examples, solutions and sharing mechanisms during this interactive session. 

    Brought to you by REN21, IRENA, the Green Learning Network, and UNEP's Youth + Education Alliance.
