REmap 2030 is a roadmap that explores a doubling of the global renewable energy
share by the end of the next decade.
REmap 2030 demonstrates possible pathways for countries, regions and sectors to
double the share of renewables globally by 2030, identify and characterise technology
options to meet the objective, and suggest opportunities for international cooperation
to realise this vision. REmap 2030 reflects collaborative efforts with regions,
countries and other stakeholders. It will remain a living document, to be continually
expanded and updated in years to come.
The analysis for REmap 2030 takes place across two parallel tracks:
- Country-based analyses of technology development, infrastructure investment needs,
cost reduction potential, and policies, conducted with national REmap experts in
26 countries representing around 75% of world energy consumption in 2030; additional
countries are to join the process in 2014/2015
- Sector-based technology roadmaps based on stakeholder workshops and research in
key sectors of energy consumption. In 2013, IRENA worked on four sectors: cities;
electricity storage; global manufacturing; and grid integration.
