GSR 2023 Collection: Check out all the modules here

GSR 2023 Collection published modules

Global Overview

The Global Overview synthesises all of the modules and discusses the status of renewable energy in the context of global challenges such as climate change, sustainable development goals, and geopolitics.

Global Overview

Renewables for Economic and Social Value Creation Module

The Renewables for Economic and Social Value Creation Module illustrates the wide range of benefits that renewable energy has the potential to bring in creating jobs, reducing pollution, improving the environment, advancing gender equality, improving energy security, and providing energy security in areas with no energy access.

Renewables for Economic and Social Value Creation

Renewables in Energy Supply Module

The Renewables in Energy Supply Module delves into the intricacies of renewable energy progress, examining energy distribution among carriers and addressing critical obstacles. It is the second in a five-piece collection released this year and represents the collaborative efforts of hundreds of contributors who share the ambition is to provide irrefutable and unbiased facts and knowledge to propel the global wave of change.

The Renewables Global Status Report goes modular

Since 2005, REN21’s Renewables Global Status Report (GSR) has spotlighted ongoing developments and emerging trends that shape the future of renewables. It is a collaborative effort involving hundreds of experts. This year’s edition (18th) has evolved in design and structure to reflect the fundamental changes in the global energy landscape.

The new structure is in the form of a collection of five publications:

In addition to presenting the trends in renewable energy supply, it also dives into the energy demand sectors, with dedicated modules on buildings, industry, transport and agriculture. It includes a publication on energy systems and infrastructure with renewables, as well as a publication on renewables for economic and social value creation, acknowledging the key role that energy plays across economies and societies.
A final systemic global overview offers readers a cross-cutting view on the current uptake of renewables.

This new structure makes the GSR a key tool in expanding the renewable energy discussion into key sectors and ecosystems, developing a shared language and driving a stronger integration of supply, demand, infrastructure, market and investment.

What is the new GSR 2023 structure?
