Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)

Mandated by 75 countries worldwide, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) aims to promote the transition to and sustainable use of renewable energy. Its website provides information — in English, French, German and Spanish — on the potential, best practices, technology available and funding for renewable energies.

It includes a presentation making the case for IRENA, a discussion paper on its role in the context of other organisations and initiatives, an overview of its founding, preparatory conferences and a roadmap.
