Renewables have become an attractive source of energy for corporate users around the world. While companies are increasingly sourcing renewable electricity, progress on corporate renewable heating and cooling remains far behind its potential. With heating and cooling representing approximately 75% of energy used in industry, which accounts for more than 25% of the global final energy consumption, the sector will play a crucial role in the energy transformation towards 100% renewables.
Developed by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Coalition for Action, which ALER is part off, the white paper Companies in transition towards 100% renewables: focus heating and cooling provides guidance for governments and companies on how to further scale up corporate sourcing of renewable heating and cooling.
