The Global Alliance for 100% Renewable Energy criticises many legislators in Europe for still lacking full commitment to the transformation to renewable energy. Member organisations of the new Alliance stated that renewable energy has become the key to Europe’s future economic and industrial development.
However, according to the Alliance, “there is still a huge gap between the overwhelming socio-economic and environmental benefits of renewable energy and the political will to set adequate targets.” Therefore, members of the Alliance, among them the World Future Council, Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and World Wind Energy Association, called for regional, national and European wide 100% renewable energy targets within the next four decades. The Alliance has launched a global campaign to Go 100% renewable energy that aims to build support for 100% renewable energy on the national, regional and local levels and to up the international debate: to 100% renewable energy targets and solutions.
