Quote of the DAY: Martin Hullin from REN21

“The future of renewable energy is fundamentally a choice. All of the resources and technologies are there, but legislators and governments have to choose a renewables path.” – Martin Hullin from REN21, COP 20 Side Event – Success in Paris: Mapping a Path Towards 100% Renewables

Event recap:

In order to address climate change, we need a rapid transformation to renewable energy and better efficiency in the use of energy globally. To do this, we need to put a realistic price on carbon, stop subsidies and new investments in fossil fuels and set stable reliable conditions for the takeoff of renewables, including sufficient financial support.

Mapping a path to 100% renewables thus would require a global renewable energy action plan, supplemented by continental, regional and national action plans combined with carbon dioxide reduction targets and efficiency targets.

To learn how we can double the world’s share of renewable energy by 2030, read IRENA’s REmap2030 report.
