#Renewables4Climate is a global initiative to raise awareness about renewable energy as a key solution to climate change. The initiative is being launched to coincide with the United Nations Framework on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP23), where renewables are highlighted as one of the critical means to keep the global temperature rise below 2 or even 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
Renewables also contribute to increased climate resilience and adaptation, accelerate energy access in rural areas, remote locations and small island developing states, and provide cleaner, healthier energy to all.
Greater global ambition on renewables is crucial if the world is going to limit emissions to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels. This site showcases some of the stories, photos and videos of how companies, governments, organizations, individuals are using renewables to transform their communities and the planet.
