IRENA in the News

  • Germany's Energiewende goes global

    Outlined in the report "REmap: Roadmap for a Renewable Energy Future", IRENA argues that in order to double the share of renewables, the world community would need to invest $770 billion annually up to 2030. But the return on investment will be huge, IRENA argues. Savings achieved - thanks to avoided expenditure on air pollution and climate change - are up to 15 times higher than the cost. And job creation will boost the economy.
