Towards 100% renewable energy cities and regions for climate change mitigation

As of: March 2021

The use of renewable energies (RE) as well as achieving local improvements to energy efficiency are both key aspects of climate change mitigation. The project supports cities and regions in partner countries in efforts to develop strategies for sourcing 100 percent of their energy needs from renewables. It is also helping relevant stakeholders to engage in the deployment of renewable energy sources and assesses local potential for renewables, creates implementation models and helps promising projects to raise financing. The project also initiates a dialogue between the various levels of government, strengthens expertise in the renewables field and encourages the development of suitable framework at the national, regional and local level. In this way, the project promotes the expansion of renewables energies and improves energy efficiency.
