REN21 Report Cover

The share of fossil fuels in final energy has remained constant (around 80.2%) for the past decade, REN21’s Renewables 2021 Global Status Report reports. The world won’t reach net zero without a rapid scale-up of renewables, nor will it achieve its sustainable development goals.

A fundamental shift in how renewables are mainstreamed in business and public activities is essential and the next steps are critical. REN21 recommends two key steps:

1️⃣ Set renewables as a key performance indicator in every economic activity.

2️⃣ Make the national share of renewables the key indicator of whether a country is achieving its climate objectives.

If governments and businesses make renewable energy the main indicator to track climate progress, it will encourage a huge wave of investment and technology uptake that will change how we use, produce, distribute and use energy.
