Achieving 100 % Renewable Energy for all – Lessons learned from the development of Renewable Energy roadmaps in the Global South

A well designed framework for 100%RE achieves the Paris climate targets and supports implementation of Agenda 2030.  Integrated 100%RE roadmaps aiming to achieve stable energy access for everybody while eradicating poverty and decarbonise the energy system are an obligation rather than an option for countries who signed both Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement.  100%RE can offer opportunities to identify synergies and complementarities between energy security, socio-economic development and climate change mitigation. Country-specific, long-term roadmaps, backed by key stakeholders can provide a positive vision and thus be a tool to develop the urgently needed political leaders in post-Paris times.

This report aims to distil the lessons learned from science-based Renewable Energy roadmap development with the aim of achieving 100% RE access for all by 2050 in line with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C target. The report’s findings are based on the processes of projects that have been set up in Tanzania, Bangladesh and Costa Rica.
