ICLEI launches its 100% Renewables Cities and Regions Energy Compact


On 24 September 2021, ICLEI’s 100% Renewables Cities and Regions Energy Compact was officially launched at the United Nations High-Level Dialogue on Energy, which calls for local and regional governments to make ambitious voluntary commitments to catapult themselves towards 100% renewable energy usage at the latest by 2050.

ICLEI’s Energy Compact complements its existing work in the renewable energy space, including the 100% Renewables Cities and Regions Roadmap project, and the 100% Renewables Cities and Regions Network. On their way to 100% renewable status, cities and regions that join ICLEI’s Energy Compact are encouraged to achieve several milestone targets by 2030 at the latest, such as achieving 100% renewable energy use in local and regional government operations, and achieving SDG7, among others.

Energy Compacts are supported by UN-Energy, and bring together various actors committing to provide $618 billion USD in support for energy access, transition and efficiency improvements in energy infrastructures, to enhance access to electricity for more than 2.3 billion people worldwide, as well as to clean cooking possibilities for 216 million people and improvements in energy efficiency and savings. Achieving these will require dedication, innovation and collaboration by all actors involved.

ICLEI’s Energy Compact aims to align local and regional ambition with actions set in motion at the national and international level, such as the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, the Cities Race to Resilience campaign, and the Race to Zero campaign, and other net-zero targets, in order to mitigate the impact of the climate emergency and strengthen social, economic, and ecological resilience in light of it. Achieving 100% renewable status can act as a stepping stone towards climate neutrality. ICLEI is committed to supporting signatories of its Energy Compact on their journey towards 100% renewable status. This support includes access to peer-networking, knowledge-sharing opportunities, access to ICLEI’s Transformative Actions Program (TAP)  if required, and showcasing opportunities at the international level.

Cities and regions that wish to strengthen their commitment and implementation efforts towards enhanced climate action and resilience through the pathway of 100% renewable energy can join ICLEI’s 100% Renewables Cities and Regions Energy Compact by contacting us at 100re.network@iclei.org.
