The GTR is the sister publication to the REN21 Renewables Global Status Report.
The Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment report (GTR) is jointly prepared by the Frankfurt School UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance, Bloomberg New Energy Finance and UN Environment. The Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment report, formerly Global Trends in Sustainable Energy Investment, was produced for the first time in 2007 under UN Environment’s Sustainable Energy Finance Initiative (SEFI). It grew out of efforts to track and publish comprehensive information about international investments in renewable energy. The latest edition of this authoritative annual report tells the story of the most recent developments, signs and signals in the financing of renewable power and fuels. It explores the issues affecting each type of investment, technology and type of economy.
The GTR is the sister publication to the REN21 Renewables Global Status Report. The latest edition of the GTR, supported by the German Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, was released in April 2018 and is available for download at
