With the new US Administration in office, China committing to becoming climate neutral by 2060, the European Green Deal and a strong social climate movement being active around the globe, the international climate change mitigation efforts have gained additional momentum. Many governments, amongst them the largest greenhouse gas emitters, have raised their climate ambitions in the past weeks and months. Ambitions by many governments to build back better, in response to the Covid-19 crisis, have added to the new climate momentum. This new momentum has been reflected in the work of three international key organisations working on the global energy transformation: IRENA, IEA and REN21. Accordingly, representatives from these three organisations will present their latest key reports which include scenarios on how the world can reach its climate goals and keep global warming at 1,5°C. In response, the RENAlliance partners, representing the renewable energy practitioners, will comment on the findings of the organisations, and highlight what needs to be done from the practitioners’ viewpoints, e.g. on policies/legal frameworks, innovation, socioeconomic development or sustainability standards.
