EGCN 100% Renewable Toolkit

EGCN 100% Renewable Toolkit

This toolkit tackles the question of how to become ‘100% renewable’. Here some of the European Green Capital Network members share some of the successes and challenges they have faced on their paths towards this vision. This toolkit shows that achieving 100% renewable status is not solely about renewable energy supplies, but also about reducing energy demand through energy efficiency measures such as building retrofits, electric mobility, achieving ambitious policies and targets, and above all, about the importance of inclusive energy transitions.
