Renewable Energy – A Crucial Role in the Future Energy Mix (Booklet - December 2015)

Renewable energy resources are one means to reduce the carbon intensity of the energy sector, improve energy security and encourage sustainable development. Investing in renewable energy resources can also be a cost-effective way to provide access to energy to those without it.

The UNECE region accounts for nearly half of global renewable energy capacity. The potential for developing renewable energy technology is growing and renewable energy is integrating progressively into the energy mix. Nevertheless, in many UNECE member States renewable energy policies do not work well and more can be done to develop suitable frameworks on how to “do renewable energy right” from a systems perspective.
