The transition to a global economy that utilizes renewable energy is essential. The current reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable financially and environmentally, and increasing demand for fossil fuels is creating violent competition for remaining available natural resources. Our challenge is to devise a strategy to provide citizens with essential energy services that do not disrupt the climate system, degrade the environment, or provoke conflict.

Since 2005, Worldwatch has collaborated with the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) to compile the annual Renewables Global Status Report, which provides an integrated perspective on the global renewable energy situation. The report has grown to become a truly collaborative effort of over 500 authors, contributors and reviewers, and is today the most frequently referenced report on renewable energy market, industry and policy trends; serving as an entry point for decision makers in governments, businesses and finance. It provides testimony of the undeterred growth of electricity, heat, and transport fuel production capacities from renewable energy sources, including solar PV, CSP, wind power, solar hot water heating, bioenergy, biofuels, hydropower, and geothermal.

Worldwatch plays a key role in compiling the annual report. Worldwatch Senior Fellow Janet Sawin is the lead author of the report, with Climate and Energy Director Alexander Ochs and Research Associate Evan Musolino serving contributing and reviewing roles.

This project is supported by Germany's Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety and the United Nations Environment Programme.
