The REN21 Renewables Global Futures Report (GFR) is a pioneering publication that provides access to the range of credible possibilities on the future of renewable energy. The report is based on interviews with over 170 leading experts around the world and the projections of 50 recently published scenarios. The report can serve as a tool for dialogue and discussion on future options, and compliments well the REN21 Renewables Global Status Report.
Released in January 2013, the report was authored by Eric Martinot and was the product of a unique collaboration between REN21 and the Institute for Sustainable Energy Policies (ISEP) during 2011-2012. See also the REN21 Policy Network for the 21st Century — Global Futures Report page.
Reader feedback and comments on the report are welcomed, including ideas for how the report can be used to facilitate dialogue and new thinking about the future. This includes your own stories of how the report is actually being used. Use the Comments page or email contact at martinot dot info
