The municipal authorities for Zhangjiakou City, in co-operation with the China National Renewable Energy Centre (CNREC) and IRENA, have adopted an ambitious 30-year roadmap to phase out coal-fired power generation and scale up solar and wind power instead.
This paper from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) presents options to speed up deployment and fully unlock the world’s vast solar PV potential over the period until 2050.
This paper presents options to speed up the deployment of wind power, both onshore and offshore, until 2050. It builds on IRENA’s global roadmap to scale up renewables and meet climate goals.
This paper examines the potential of hydrogen fuel for hard-to-decarbonise energy uses, including aviation, shipping and other. But the decarbonisation impact depends on how hydrogen is produced.
The findings of the Renewable Energy Readiness Assessment (RRA) highlight major obstacles to the widespread deployment of renewable energy systems. They identify critical actions that could have a significant impact on increasing renewables in the short and medium term.
Les conclusions de l’évaluation de l’état de préparation aux énergies renouvelables (RRA) soulignent les obstacles majeurs qui entravent le déploiement généralisé des systèmes d’energie renouvelable. Elles identifient des actions critiques qui pourraient avoir un impact significatif sur...
The world needs USD 110 trillion worth of energy investments by 2050 for a climate-safe system. Currently planned fossil-fuel investments must be largely redirected into renewables, efficiency and other clean technologies.
This report explores the impact of maritime shipping on carbon-dioxide emissions, the structure of the shipping sector, and key areas that need to be addressed to reduce the sector’s carbon footprint.
IRENA’s Innovation Landscape report highlights innovations in enabing technologies.
This booklet outlines why accelerating the uptake of renewable energy is key to a climate-safe future.
