The 5th edition of the Global Renewable Energy Forum (GREF) is organized by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, Bonn Office in cooperation with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and REN21 – the Renewable Energy Network for the 21st Century.

GREF 2021 takes place as a hybrid conference on September 16, 2021, from 9:00-13:15 hrs (CEST).

More and more countries and companies commit to net zero-emission strategies, and roughly 73% of global CO2 emissions are subject to specific net-zero targets. Renewables continue to increase and reported a record year in 2020. Yet, to move toward a net zero-emission pathway, annual additions of wind and solar capacity must increase four-fold by 2030, making the 2020s a decisive decade. Limiting temperature increase to 1.5°C by mid-century requires an energy transition based on renewable energy sources and energy-efficient technologies.

Cities play a crucial role in achieving the energy transition not only in the power sector but also in end-use sectors lagging in the uptake of renewables that constitute serious obstacles to attaining net zero-emission targets. Particularly heating has not seen much addition of renewables in recent years.

Against this backdrop, GREF 2021 focuses on net zero-emission pathways of the public and private sectors and the role of cities in the energy transition, with a particular focus on buildings. It demonstrates ways to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and particularly focuses on how to implement ambitious 2030 targets.

The partners of the conference are ICLEI, International Geothermal Association (IGA), Eurosolar, UNIDO ITPO Germany, World Wind Energy Association (WWEA), Germanwatch, the EnergyAgency.NRW, and the German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water (DVGW).
