Together for 100% Renewable Europe

“Under this call to action ‘Together for 100% Renewable Europe: Prosperous. Sustainable. For everyone’, we will work towards scaling up the deployment of solar and wind energy which benefits people and supports protection and restoration of nature. This is the decade to make it happen. Along with governments, we also need local authorities and municipalities, investors and businesses to harvest the benefits of 100% renewable energy”.

In October 2021, CAN Europe together with its members successfully launched the Together for 100% Renewable Europe campaign with a call to action ahead of COP26. We asked for Europe to accelerate solar and wind energy deployment at the pace and scale required by the climate crisis. A communications push of the campaign (#TogetherFor100RE) contributed to creating a Europe-wide momentum for sustainable renewable energy.

In parallel to the European call to action, we mobilised members and allies from Central and Eastern European countries to send an open letter calling on their governments for a faster and just transition to sustainable renewables. With a virtual study tour – a series of targeted online events – we brought together policy makers and experts in renewable energy from industry associations, city networks, think-tanks, and CSOs at national and EU level to explore how we can urgently transition away from fossil fuels to sustainable renewable energy.
