  • Fossil Free Sweden (the Swedish Government's website) Sweden will be one of the world’s first fossil-free welfare countries. To this end, the Government has launched the Fossil Free Sweden initiative, where Swedish actors are given the opportunity to call attention to how they are contributing to climate change work. The initiative brings together actors from the business sector, municipalities, regions and organisations from across the country.

  • 1990 NOPEC II (ASES)

  • 2000 Apollo2 - Solar Energy Meets the Challenge (ISES)

  • 2005 A Roadmap to 100% Renewable Energy (Ecotopia)

  • 2006 A Wake-Up Call Dawn of the Solar Era (ASES / Solar Today)

Several organizations have been helping to organize international commitments to 100% renewable energy:
