In 2011, the Renewables 100 Policy Institute created Go100Percent.org as part of our mission to study and accelerate the global transition to 100% renewable energy.
Our travels had taught us first hand that seeing is believing that 100% renewable energy is not only possible, but a smarter, more efficient, cleaner way of managing energy systems. So why not help others see by helping them virtually travel to 100% renewable energy projects around the world?
We set out to create a comprehensive interactive map of communities, regions, countries, and organizations that have set or achieved 100% renewable energy targets in at least one sector (power, heating/cooling, transportation). Updates and new project submissions are welcome.
We also thought it would be helpful to provide an online learning library of publications and films, video interviews by our team and others, links to other projects about 100% renewable energy, and relevant news and event announcements. Please contact us with ideas for additions.
Various groups quickly began discovering Go 100% as a networking hub and means to forward their own projects and campaigns. Whether fighting against dirty energy development or fighting for 100% renewable energy targets, Go 100% tools have helped to motivate and inform.
In 2013, Renewables 100 Policy Institute was approached by a coalition of long established, international leaders in the 100% renewable energy movement, who similarly recognized the need to strengthen the worldwide campaign for 100% renewable energy. The Go 100% Project seemed to be the natural platform from which to build such an effort. Renewables 100 Policy Institute has embraced this opportunity to join forces with these esteemed Partners. Together, we are all now taking the international campaign for 100% renewable energy to the next level.
We hope you will join us.
