It is therefore crucial that the GCF succeed in its mission.

Recent data and research findings confirm the rapid capacity growth, ongoing cost and performance improvements, increasing technological sophistication and continued need for international standardisation for new renewables, such as offshore wind power and nascent ocean energy technologies.

Since the Paris Climate Agreement solidified an “all hands on deck” approach to climate change, cities, regions and businesses have become key contributors to mitigation, adaptation and finance efforts.
