Share your feedback, review the full report

You might have had the chance to contribute data and information to the report – we have incorporated the depth of your contributions in this draft of the full report. It is now ready for your expert review.  Share your feedback, fill data gaps and help us draw the right picture of developments in renewables last year.  As always, all contributors will be acknowledged in the final report.


What will happen after peer review?

The REN21 team and report authors will go through your expert feedback and integrate it into the report. In case of questions, we would love to be able to reach out to you, so please remember to add your name before your comments. The UNECE report 2022 will be launched end-July. You will be the first to know!
