IRENA June 2016. In October 2015, under the Turkish presidency, the G20 adopted the “Toolkit of Voluntary Options for Renewable Energy Deployment”. IRENA has been requested to co-ordinate toolkit activities, in co-operation with other international organizations.
One of five focus areas of the toolkit is the development of roadmaps for renewable energy deployment in the G20. IRENA’s renewable energy roadmap (REmap) programme assesses the potential of renewable energy technology and their costs and benefits in enabling the world to double its share of renewables by the year 2030. The second edition of the global REmap was issued in March 2016. It includes renewables roadmaps for G20 member countries. This background paper summarizes the results for the G20, identifies action areas for G20 policy makers and proposes the next steps of a “REmap G20 process”.
