It is clear that in order to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement to limit the rise in global temperatures, we will need to transition to net-zero emissions by mid-century. Having a low-to-zero carbon energy system, based primarily on renewable energies, will be at the core of this transition. Energy Compacts were launched by UN-Energy under the framework of the High Level Dialogue on Energy in September 2021. Their aim is to mobilize commitments and action towards achieving SDG 7 by 2030. UN-Energy will play the role of a 'matchmaker' to bring together those seeking to act, and those with the resources, to be able to realize on the ground these bold ambitions and act now. ICLEI's 100% Renewables Cities and Regions Energy Compact aims to mobilize local and regional governments committed to increasing the uptake of renewable energy in their territories, setting a number of non-binding but ambitious interim targets, with the ultimate goal of reaching 100% renewable energy use by 2050. ICLEI aims to channel resources directly to local and regional governments through this initiative with UN-Energy's assistance, and help them to act on their ambitious commitments. This activity is aligned with the 100% RE Network, which can also enable action through knowledge sharing and peer exchange.
