On the occasion of the World Renewable Energy Day: 

Programme for Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform Launch Event published 

Bonn, 26 April 2017 – Today’s World Renewable Energy Day draws our attention to a nuclear-free and carbon-free, renewables-based future. 26 April marks the 31st anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster which has changed the way many of us look at energy supply, long before climate change became a major international topic and 25 years before the Fukushima disaster.

Global 100% RE would like to use this important day to invite you to attend the official launch of The Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform. The event will feature some of the world’s most renowned experts on renewable energy and will present actual solutions and strategies for achieving Global 100% RE, in line with the world’s climate change mitigation needs and also to provide access to modern energy services to all human beings.
