Increasing Ambition

We’re working with our members to bring forward their target dates for 100% renewable electricity, increasing global ambition on renewables.

The acceleration of the global transition to renewable electricity is central to RE100’s mission. Our goal is carbon free grids by 2040. We therefore ask RE100 members to show climate leadership and be more ambitious by bringing forward their RE100 target dates. In doing so, RE100 and its members are intensifying the corporate demand signal to policymakers for zero carbon grids.

To date, 20 RE100 members have brought forward their targets by a combined total of 248 years.

28.3

TW/h per year

That's 28.3 TW/h per year switching to 100% renewable electricity sooner than initially planned. That’s greater than the annual electricity demand of Nigeria.

Why are we doing this?

Climate science shows that we need to move faster. We’re encouraging both current and future members to increase their ambition, by setting a target year of 2040 or earlier – helping us to reach a cleaner, greener future sooner. Read RE100’s Accelerating market pressure statement to learn more.

Ambitious new joiners

We're also working with prospective new members to bring forward their target dates for 100% renewable electricity, asking them to increase their ambition in the recruitment process before finalising their membership. 

Through working closely together during the joining process, 14 prospective new RE100 members recently showed ambition and brought forward their target dates.

That's 6.8 TW/h per year switching to 100% renewables sooner than initially mapped out by the RE100 team and the new joiners.
