The transition towards an efficient, renewables-based energy system is not happening quickly enough. The world is far from being on track to reach the 1.5°C targets or achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Reinforcing societal support for the deployment of renewable energy and the necessary infrastructure, and tackling the arguments against it is, therefore, more urgent than ever.
While a massive uptake of renewables brings clear benefits, like any technology or infrastructure, it creates pressures on both the environment and human well-being. Addressing these pressures is crucial to ensure that the transition to a renewables-based energy system fulfils its objectives of a more inclusive, fair, and clean economy and society.
Building on REN21’s collaborative culture, the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Report aims to build a shared understanding of the current thinking about the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of renewable energy.
The report will identify the benefits and pressures that the deployment of renewable energy technologies and infrastructures may trigger on both the environment and human well-being.
