The world understands that a green recovery can deliver large-scale job creation in the near term and contribute significantly to much-needed decarbonisation efforts.
In this context, the consultancy EY-Parthenon, with the support of the ECF, has compiled a report with a list of 13,000 real and sustainable renewable energy projects identified in 47 countries. Presented in an online webinar on July 7th, 2021, the global report shows that these projects can kick-start a massive green and renewable recovery to begin immediately across the world. These “no regrets” investments to deploy the identified “shovel ready” pipeline will contribute over one-fifth of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) commitments and can mitigate or reverse a substantial proportion of the economic losses due to Covid-19 across the countries included in the study.
In addition to the global study which you can find further below, there are three national-level deep-dives focussing on the UK, Turkey, and South Africa.
For further enquiries about the report or if you are interested in viewing the launch event held on July 7th, 2021, please contact Madeleine Brach, Programme Assistant for the International Energy Initiative at the ECF (madeleine.brach@Europeanclimate.org).
