IRENA’s REmap programme determines the potential for countries, regions and the world to scale up renewables. REmap assesses renewable energy potential assembled from the bottom-up, starting with country analyses done in collaboration with country experts, and then aggregating these results to arrive at a global picture.
The roadmap focuses not just on renewable power technologies, but also technology options in heating, cooling and transport. REmap focuses on possible technology pathways and assesses numerous other metrics, including: technology, sector and system costs; investment needs; externalities relating to air pollution and climate; CO2 emissions; and economic indicators such as employment and economic growth. Based on these country driven results, REmap provides insights to policy and decision makers for areas in which action is needed.
The REmap programme includes a wide range of knowledge products, reports, datasets and documents.
