Towards 100% Renewable Energy Cities and Regions for climate change mitigation

As of: November 2020

The project will support cities and regions in Argentina, Indonesia and Kenya to develop community-wide 100% Renewable Energy (RE) strategies with increased awareness and stakeholder engagement. It will support the assessment of local RE potential and project concepts, as well as the development of selected projects into viable business cases. The project will consolidate methodological tools and resources to support the development of city-wide 100% RE strategies and create opportunities for peer-learning. The project will promote multi-level governance policy dialogue, strengthen capacities and encourage the development of national, regional and local enabling frameworks to unlock the local potential for RE and energy efficiency. It will showcase how local projects and policies contribute to the achievement of national climate and energy targets in NDCs and other policy objectives such as energy security and job creation, in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals.
