This outlook highlights climate-safe investment options until 2050, policies for transition and specific regional challenges. It also explores options to eventually cut emissions to zero.
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 maps and categorises innovative solutions to integrate renewables. It brings together insights on key innovations to facilitate higher shares of solar and wind in the power sector.
This report examines the question of gender equity throughout sector. Building on a ground-breaking survey, it finds that much remains to be done to boost women’s participation and allow talents to be fully utilised.
This Commission Report analyses the geopolitical implications of the accelerating global shift to renewables. It is the culmination of deliberations by the Global Commission on the Geopolitics of Energy Transformation.
As the world strives to cut carbon emissions, electric power from renewables has emerged as a vital energy source. Fuel needs for transport and industry, meanwhile, could be met with renewable-based hydrogen.
Renewable energy needs to be scaled up at least six times faster for the world to start meeting key decarbonisation and climate mitigation goals. Yet the envisaged energy transformation cannot happen by itself. This report identifies focus areas where policy and decision makers need to act.
