The Climate Parliament is an international, multi-partisan network of legislators working worldwide to help solve the climate crisis and accelerate the transition to renewable energy.
BUILDING POLITICAL WILL
The Green Grids Initiative (GGI) was launched by world leaders at COP26 in Glasgow. The initiative, along with the Green Grids Initiative – One Sun One World One Grid partnership, forms the biggest ever global political coalition for clean energy. It has now been endorsed by 90 countries worldwide. Beyond governments, the GGI brings together legislators, business leaders, international organisations, research institutions and civil society to further its aim: to accelerate the construction of the new infrastructure needed for a world powered by clean energy. That infrastructure includes massively expanded renewable energy generation capacity in energy-rich locations, connected by continental grids. It includes smart grids connecting millions of solar panels and charging points for electric vehicles, and micro-grids for rural communities and to ensure resilience during extreme weather.
Parliamentary Action on Renewable Energy
The PARE programme aims to create awareness among key legislators in Africa and in small island developing states, and to mobilise them to take action on climate and renewable energy issues. We are organising a series of virtual roundtable meetings featuring renowned experts in rural access to renewable energy through mini-grids, large-scale renewable energy and green grids, and sustainable transport.
