"The Climate Group is an award-winning, international non-profit. Our goal is a prosperous, low carbon future. We believe this will be achieved through a ‘clean revolution’: the rapid scale-up of low carbon energy and technology.

 

We work with corporate and government partners to develop climate finance mechanisms, business models which promote innovation, and supportive policy frameworks. We convene leaders, share hard evidence of successful low carbon growth, and pilot practical solutions which can be replicated worldwide.

Our offices are in Greater China, North America, India and Europe. 2014 was The Climate Group’s 10th Anniversary."

“The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is at the heart of this shift – the same as it was at the heart of the last energy boom. And just as its massive oil reserves provided a springboard for the incumbent energy revolution, its huge solar resources and cutting-edge technology development are shaping the region as a hub for the new, clean energy revolution.”

 

The Analysis is part of the “a renewable 100% initiative” termed “RE100”. http://www.theclimategroup.org/what-we-do/programs/re100/

 

“RE100 was officially launched at Climate Week NYC 2014. Fifteen companies have now joined the campaign and made a public commitment to going 100% renewable. RE100 brings together BT Group, Commerzbank, Formula E, H&M, IKEA Group, KPN, Mars, Nestlé, Philips, Reed Elsevier Group, J. Safra Sarasin Bank, SAP, SGS, Swiss Re and YOOX Group. Find out more about the campaign at TheRE100.org.”
