Strengthening actors of the energy transition

Strengthening actors of the energy transition 

Harnessing the benefits of renewable energy and sustainable development. 

Expanding capacities 

We build capacities among policy makers and civil society actors by facilitating peer-to-peer exchange and providing access to up-to-date knowledge of a just energy transition. 

The Global Renewables Congress

The Global Renewables Congress facilitates international, impartial dialogue for policy makers to exchange experiences and knowledge of the legislative framework for a just energy transition. 

Worldwide networking 

We work with international and local partners to strengthen civil society capacities, efficiently communicate energy transition approaches and coordinate national policy making for a just transition to 100% renewable energy. 

Current projects

The Global Renewables Congress 

MPs are key players in the energy transition. As legislators, they can catalyse and facilitate the implementation of the transition to renewable energies, develop strategies to overcome remaining obstacles and ensure that international commitments are implemented. 

The Global Renewables Congress (GRC) is a transnational, cross-party platform that enables peer-to-peer exchanges among and with legislators. The GRC focuses on solutions for the rapid and large-scale use of renewable energies through appropriate legal frameworks. 

100%RE-Multi Actor Partnership: Facilitate transformative action 

We connect stakeholders at all levels of government with a particular focus on renewable energy and decarbonisation. By including all voices of society in political dialogues, we make ideas and possibilities for transformative and socially just measures visible and audible. 

Strengthening communication 

Building a global movement for 100% renewable energy requires strong communication and advocacy skills. Through partnerships with international networks such as the Climate Action Network (CAN), we strengthen the communication capacities of civil society in order to clearly articulate demands and solutions for the energy transition and demand participation in decision-making processes.
