What is the 100% Renewable Energy Network

The 100% Renewable Energy Network is a convenient and free platform to highlight the leadership and best practices of communities powered by or aspiring to be powered by 100% renewable energy (100% RE).

The network’s repository of collective 100% RE technical knowhow provides a forum for solution-oriented 100% RE dialogue. It is as much a 100% RE center as it is a bridge to relate and support achievement of national and international targets.

This inclusive and interactive resource center provides access to renewable energy and energy efficiency experts, tools, and latest findings and reports.
