Roadmaps for renewable energy

Renewable Energy Roadmaps

Science-based policy making for 100% Renewable Energy

We are teaming up with partners from around the world to develop national roadmaps for 100% renewable energy.

Creating personal responsibility

As a driver for sustainable development, poverty reduction and climate protection, it is clear that 100% renewable energy must become a reality before 2050. By involving key decision-makers from different sectors in the energy transition process, we create responsibility for the much-needed transition to 100% renewable energy.

National Strategies

Together with local partners, we develop national strategies based on the latest energy models to make 100% renewable energy goal a reality. We identify necessary legislation and policy reforms and strengthen synergies through discussions  with stakeholders from different sectors.

Calling for action

100% RE Roadmaps bring people closer to the social and economic opportunities of renewable energy. Submitting estimates of employment growth, investment needs and CO2 emission reduction potential promotes ambitious climate protection measures and promotes strategies for sustainable development.

Current projects

Multi-Actor Partnerships (MAPs) for 100% renewable energy in the Global South

The 100RE-MAP project connects people to the social and economic opportunities of renewable energy to drive ambitious climate action and promote sustainable development strategies. The 100RE-MAP project is facilitating much-needed change to advance renewable energy and ensure that economic and social development meets the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C climate target. The project will be implemented simultaneously in Nepal, Uganda and Vietnam.

100% Renewable Energy for Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a pioneer in renewable energy. As of 2014, approximately 95-98% of the country’s electricity comes from renewable sources, while almost the entire population has access to energy. However, despite nearly 100 percent renewable electricity generation, around 70 percent of the country’s total energy still comes from oil and gas. These are still used extensively for transportation, industrial heating processes, and activities such as cooking.

100% Renewable Energy for Bangladesh

Bangladesh is among the five fastest growing economies in the world. However, the country’s economic expansion is increasing energy requirements and putting a strain on the existing energy infrastructure. In recent decades, it has been a constant struggle to ensure access to energy reliably and at an affordable price for everyone. Over five million Solar Home Systems (SHS) have been sold in areas where electrification and grid expansion are particularly challenging. A decentralised renewable energy system offers Bangladesh an enormous opportunity to accelerate economic development while sustainably improving access to energy and the livelihoods and health of millions of people.
