REN21 and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) present the third, joint UNECE Renewable Energy Status Report 2022 focusing on 17 countries across South East and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Russian Federation.

Despite the promise of a worldwide green recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, this historic opportunity has been lost, says this report, but India ranked third globally for total renewable power capacity additions with 15.4 GW in 2021, following only China (136 GW) and the US (43 GW).

Affordable, accessible and safe public transport is a fundamental solution to dramatically reduce emissions. However, the crucial link between renewables and public transport has been largely ignored.

This report released by REN21 Secretariat, shows that governments need to give a much harder push to renewables in all sectors, It advocates for the establishment of renewable shares as key performance indicators for both private and public decision-making processes as well as key measures for progress towards climate and energy goals

The pandemic has thrown into stark relief the global battle of cities for cleaner air and a better future.

Renewable electricity, specifically wind power and solar photovoltaic (PV), has become the most economical sources of electricity in many parts of the world.

A rapid and fundamental shift is required in transport to enable the decarbonisation required to meet the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement, with actors in both the energy and transport sectors working together. To that end, REN21 teamed up with the FIA Foundation to do an in-depth study: Renewable Energy Pathways in Road Transport.

GSR2020 provides a comprehensive overview of global developments in renewable energy markets, investments and policies in 2019. This year’s report includes a feature chapter on citizen support for renewable energy projects.

Cities have a unique role to play in accelerating the sustainable energy transition. Crisscrossed with transport systems and home to a variety of energy-intensive end-use sectors like heating and cooling, cities are a prime playing field to transition to sustainable energy.

Global investment in renewable energy hit USD 288.9 billion in 2018, with the amount spent on new capacity far exceeding the financial backing for new fossil fuel power, according to new figures published. These numbers, produced by BloombergNEF (BNEF), are being published as part of REN21’s Renewables 2019 Global Status Report.
