The UN climate conference COP24 in Katowice reminds us of the imperative of a just energy transition on our pathway towards a climate-safe future.
Accelerating energy transformation is key for a climate-safe future. The world's future depends on the energy decisions we make today.
Policy makers and influencers, innovators and business drivers from a wide range of sectors and across the world came together for this year’s Global Climate Action Energy Day at the UN Climate Change Conference in Katowice.
Renewable energy, together with energy efficiency, form the cornerstone of the world’s mitigation strategy. They represent a safe, reliable, affordable and immediately deployable pathway to a low-carbon future.
Renewables are, in combination with energy efficiency, the key to uncoupling economic growth from an increase in emissions. IRENA analysis estimates that G20 countries hold 75% of the global renewables deployment potential by 2030.
