Abstract. The Paris Agreement was adopted in 2015 – a new comprehensive agreement on greenhouse gas emissions. The goal is to keep the growth of the average global temperature within 2ºС until 2100, which will prevent catastrophic climate change. World practice of renewable energy development offers ready-made ways to decarbonize the global energy balance. Doubling the share of renewable energy sources in the global energy balance by 2030 can contribute up to 50% of the required reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. It is shown that the Russian plan of participation in the Paris Agreements for 80% is based on measures to improve energy efficiency in the national economy, which are complemented by the introduction of renewable energy sources.
