ISES contribution to 100% RE Report

13. January 2020

The International Solar Energy Society as member of the IRENA Coalition for Action is proud to share the release of the second edition of the coalitions white paper on 100% renewable energy.

Under the title of "Towards 100% renewable energy: utilities in transition" the coalition members build on several case studies and first-hand interviews with utilities, outlining a broad variety of experiences and lessons learned from utilities undertaking the transition to 100% renewable energy. The paper also includes updated mapping of 100% renewable energy targets at the national and subnational levels. The paper consists of the mapping of 100% renewable energy targets on both a national as well as a subnational level, an analysis of the role of utilities in the energy transformation, key takeaways, lessons learned as well as nation-level, regional/state-level as well as city/municipal-level utilities case studies.

For ISES, Immediate Past-President Dave Renné and Past President Monica Oliphant contributed to this important paper and ISES invites you to find the full paper here.

Dave Renne says: “This report provides useful and practical information to government and utility decision-makers around the world about meaningful policies and actions they can take to achieve a transformation to 100% renewable energy, especially in the power sector. Working along with Rainer Hinrichs-Rahlwes and IRENA’s Coalition for Action team as well as the group of international experts to produce this report was a valuable experience, and we look forward to developing another white paper this year addressing additional topics that will lead us towards a 100% renewable energy transformation.”

The IRENA Coalition for Action is an international network with a vision for its members to work together to advance renewable energy in order to drive the global energy transformation in line with the Sustainable Development Goal on energy.
