Renewable energy technologies
are ready to deliver on the
Paris Agreement
The REN Alliance, a coalition of five renewable energy associations, joined forces at COP22 in
Marrakech to demonstrate how renewable technologies working together can meet energy
needs at island, rural, city, national and regional levels.
alike. Renewable energy technologies are
today’s cheapest options when comparing
new investment – this has been stated by
independent organizations like IRENA. Hence
the global transition to a renewable energy
future is not any more a financial burden
but will enhance economic growth and prosperity in addition to mitigation of climate
The renewable technologies represented by
REN-Alliance members are already in a position of cost effective maturity to achieve a
carbon free energy system within the 2050
time frame called for by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and as
adopted in the Paris Agreement. The REN-Alliance is accelerating its efforts to promote
how the renewable energy technologies
represented by its member partners can all
work together to contribute to the climate
reduction goals set forth by the Paris Agreement.
The REN-Alliance brings together five renewable industry organizations to promote the
use of renewable energy technologies worldwide: the International Hydropower Association, the International Geothermal Association, the International Solar Energy Society,
the World Bioenergy Association, and the
World Wind Energy Association.
Through the presentation of case studies and
best practices being undertaken by localities,
regions, and communities throughout the
world, and the promotion of favorable policies, the REN-Alliance is
demonstrating that renewables working together
can result in a decarbonized energy systems
based on a global 100%
renewable energy well
before the end of this
century, leading to the
mitigation of the major
environmental challenge
of our time.
The REN Alliance underlines that a renewable
energy supply is not only
good for the climate, but
offers manifold economic
and social benefits, for
developing and for industrialized countries
