G20 countries consume over 80% of the world’s energy. Clearly, they have a responsibility to lead the charge on renewables. And they know it: the final communique from the 2021 Rome summit said that to keep 1.5 degrees within reach requires meaningful action to reach net zero by 2050. However, RE100 members still struggle to procure renewables in many of these countries.
This roundtable will launch RE100’s findings from a new briefing on the status of the renewable energy transition in G20 countries. We will highlight the progress of the climate leaders while pushing the laggards to adopt ambitious renewables targets.
