The Global 100%RE Cities & Regions Network brings together leading cities, towns and regions that are driving the transition towards 100% Renewable Energy, in a global community of practice to facilitate peer-learning and accelerate progress. The 100%RE Cities & Regions Network is part of the Global 100% Renewable Energy Campaign. The Network is inclusive and open to all ambitious cities, towns, and regions setting their course towards 100% Renewable Energy and demonstrating that it is possible to realize this vision. It is coordinated by all partners of the Global 100% RE campaign that work directly with cities and regions and is comprised of local and subnational governments (e.g., cities, towns, regions, provinces, states) that have approved a 100% Renewable Energy (RE) target or that are committed to setting up such a target for their jurisdiction in the foreseeable future. The term “city” is used to describe all these actors.

Purpose of the Network

  • To support all interested local governments in defining a 100% RE vision for their territory;
  • To function as the entry point for local and sub-national governments to engage in the multistakeholder
    Global 100%RE Campaign;
  • To facilitate peer-learning and exchange between leading cities that are driving the
    transition towards RE, forming a community of practice to further support and accelerate
    progress;
  • To contribute to the development, testing and validation of standard approaches and
    methodologies to define robust pathways for the transition towards a 100% RE and to
    monitor and demonstrate progress in a credible way to the international community;
  • To inspire other local and sub-national governments to follow suit and contribute to the
    transition towards 100% RE.
