A study shows a transition to 100% clean, renewable energies is highly realistic – even today, with the technologies currently available.
Christian Breyer, Professor for Solar Economy at LUT University, Finland and Hans-Josef Fell, President of the Energy Watch Group, present on their latest joint publication, the study on Global Energy Systems based on 100% Renewable Energy.The study, published April 2019, is the first of its kind to outline a 1.5°C scenario with a cost-effective, cross-sectoral, technology-rich global 100% renewable energy system that does not build on negative CO2 emission technologies.
Written by the “Climate News Network,” this article provides a synopsis of 47 peer-reviewed research papers by 91 different authors that agree that renewable energy can meet the world’s energy needs by the middle of this century. Not only is it possible to power the world through wind, solar, and water, but this article also discusses the 28.6 million long-term, full-time jobs that will be created through the switch to renewable energies. The article also provides links to various research papers and resources for further reading.
The Center for Green Schools has multiple free curricular toolkits in green building design, operation, and construction, zero waste, and green careers to help students move into the high job growth area of green building design and construction.
This Guide is designed to help leaders and practitioners of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in improving their understanding and implementation of education for sustainable development (ESD) using a whole-institution approach to greening their institutions. The Guide reflects the objective of the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for TVET to assist TVET institutions in their journey towards transformation.
Hydrogen produced with renewable energy sources – or “green” hydrogen – has emerged as a key element to achieve net-zero emissions from heavy industry and transport. Along with net-zero commitments by growing numbers of governments, green hydrogen has started gaining momentum based on low-cost renewable electricity, ongoing technological improvements and the benefits of greater power-system flexibility.
Hydrogen-based fuels previously attracted interest mainly as an alternative to shore up oil supply. However, green hydrogen, as opposed to the “grey” (fossil-based) or “blue” (hybrid) varieties, also help to boost renewables in the energy mix and decarbonise energy-intensive industries.
This report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) outlines the main barriers that inhibiting green hydrogen uptake and the policies needed to address these. It also offers insights on how to kickstart the green hydrogen sector as a key enabler of the energy transition at the national or regional level.

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future, and serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, a centre of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy. IRENA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy, including bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, ocean, solar and wind energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon economic growth and prosperity.
IRENA provides a number of up to date publications on renewable energy topics, which are free to read. Topic sectors include the benefits and costs of renewable energy, climate change, energy transition, off grid for energy access, finance, heating and cooling, innovation, islands, policy, power, statistics, and transport.
Interest in creating a greener and more sustainable future has never been higher. To complement this growing interest, quality career resources are needed. This article on Green and Sustainability Jobs and Career Resources provides perspectives and resources to enhance career advising efforts for green and sustainability jobs.
While designed for the UK, the Energy Department there is now working with teams around the world to help them develop their own calculators, and is also building a Global Calculator to look at ways to reduce emissions worldwide.
