It is a fact that non-renewable energies will, by definition, run out. It is also a fact that in the meantime, dependence on these energy sources is causing multiple global crises. If we are to preserve modernity and planetary habitability, we must soon shift to 100% renewable energy in all sectors. Despite this basic logic, most of humanity so far has taken measures nowhere near proportional to the problem.
One fundamental necessity to breaking the inertia is a robust, global call for a 100% renewable energy target. After all, if a critical mass of people does not set the required goal, we are far less likely to achieve it.
The Renewable Energy Policy Institute with key partners has established itself as a leader of this critical call for action. The mission of the Renewables 100 Policy Institute is to focus on creating the foundation for the successful transition to a 100% renewable energy future. Of critical importance are the areas of policy making, technical solutions demonstrated by real life project applications, grassroots education and strategic partnerships with other NGOs and organizations, and effective stakeholder outreach on all levels.
Many cities, communities and countries already have 100% renewable energy targets, some of them have already reached those targets and are achieving more than 100% of locally generated renewable energy for details, please see www.renewables100.org and related links.
