The agreement reached at COP28 this week, calling on countries to transition away from fossil fuels in energy systems in a just, orderly and equitable manner, is a historic marker, signalling the end of the era of fossil fuels and the beginning of the age of renewables.
Renewables and their unstoppable power to bring prosperity and a clean future bookended the COP28 proceedings.
The groundbreaking pledge made by 130 countries at the opening of the COP to treble renewable energy production by 2030 was further consolidated in a global goal in the Global Stocktake in the closing hours of the international conference of leaders.
ReNew2030 is proud to have contributed to this pivotal moment by supporting partners around the world to address the barriers and levers that affect the rapid and equitable scaling up of wind and solar power.
At COP28 we saw civil society organisations from around the world holding firm on the need for an equitable, well financed, fair transition. We saw the renewables industry come together in force calling for 3x renewable energy by 2030 – exemplified by the leadership of the Global Renewables Alliance team. And we saw philanthropy and the regional climate foundations coming together with the ReNew2030 international partners with a clear message in support of the renewables goal.
ReNew2030 will continue to work with partners on the ground through the regional climate foundations and international partners to turn this historic goal into real projects that meet the needs of communities around the world.
