World’s richest countries fall short on renewable energy targets

Eleven of the 20 largest economies got a C or worse on a renewable energy report
card, which assessed their plans to reach net zero and their targets for
producing and using renewable energy. Most of the world’s 20 largest
economies, known as the G20, lack ambitious renewable energy targets or are
falling short of their climate commitments, according to a report by
climate and renewable energy advocacy groups.

The G20, which includes 19 countries and the European Union (EU) and Spain as a permanent guest, is
responsible for around 80 per cent of global energy-related emissions. This
gives the group significant responsibility to reduce emissions as well as
influence over the world’s pace to decarbonise, says Mike Peirce at the
Climate Group, a UK nonprofit that advocates for climate action.

Peirce, along with others from the Climate Group and a renewable energy research
group called REN21, analysed data on renewable energy development within
G20 countries to rank their progress towards renewable energy goals. A
“sustainable energy transition” is a top priority to be discussed
during the G20’s annual conference in Bali in November.
