Representatives from major organisations from all over the world gathered in Bonn on May 8 to discuss renewable energy presented solutions and strategies for achieving global 100% renewable energy, Global 100% RE Platform said in a press release.

Held in parallel with the UN Bonn Climate Change Talks, the Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform event aimed at making renewable energy a reality in the interest of mitigating the effects of climate change.

The Platform’s work will be guided by its principles that all new investments into energy systems have to be 100% renewable energy based, and that decentralised and people-centered approaches are the best and fastest way to transform societies.

"Renewables contribute to world peace because conflicts over resources can be avoided if countries can produce their own electricity sustainably,” Platform Ambassador and former Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said.
