Renewable Energy Policies for Cities: Buildings is one of a series of three briefs intended to help policy makers accelerate efforts to create sustainable cities powered by renewable energy.
The report outlines ways in which cities can catalyse the shift to a low-carbon future, in turn supporting regional and national governments with the achievement of sustainable energy targets.
This brief will highlight best practices in sustainable urban transport and showcase city actions that accelerate the creation of sustainable transport systems.
The report outlines ways in which cities can catalyse the shift to a low-carbon future – in turn supporting regional and national governments with the achievement of sustainable energy targets and the realisation of global climate objectives.
This webinar presented main findings of the new report, with a view toward the motivations and objectives that compel cities to act; the variety of drivers that either enable or constrain cities’ actions and thus influence what they can do; and the policy tools they can apply. Shaped by these factors, cities can play a multitude of roles.

With a view to supporting the efforts of the countries of Latin America in undertaking the transformation of their energy sector, IRENA and the Ministry of Environment and Energy of Costa Rica co-organised a regional workshop to exchange lessons learned and best practices in the development and implementation of decarbonisation strategies driven by renewable energy, energy...
The workshop on ‘Sharing experiences in applying innovative solutions to achieve 100% renewable power systems’ was held online and connected representatives from countries to explore the most disruptive innovations enabling the rapid uptake of a high share of variable renewables in power systems by mid-century
Central America’s potential to develop variable renewable energy is significant, and recent capacity additions in El Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama point to a bright future for wind and solar adoption in the region. But to stimulate the investments necessary for a long-term sustainable energy pathway in the region, grid stability and system reliability must be...
