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.
