  • enhancing energy security
  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change
  • alleviating energy poverty
  • supporting sustainable development, and
  • boosting economic growth.

IRENA – Building a New Energy Agency RenewablesNovember 15, 2010 by Anja Atkinson On the 24th and 25th October, the International Renewable Energy Agency held it’s fourth session of the Preparatory Commission in Abu Dhabi. All together 300 delegates attended from more than 100 countries.

The forming of the International Renewable Energy Agency was spear-headed through the efforts of the German government and Dr. Hermann Scheer’s tireless work to promote renewable energy globally….5 countries joined IRENA at this initial meeting and today 148 countries are now participating: 48 African, 38 European, 35 Asian, 17 American and 10 from Australia & Oceania States……
IRENA’s Vision Statement

The world’s vast renewable energy resources remain largely untapped. With the global population projected to reach 10 billion in 2050, abundant renewable energy sources worldwide can make a significant contribution to the world’s growing demand for energy. Recognising the huge potential of renewable energy, IRENA’s Member States have joined together to establish an international organisation dedicated to facilitating the rapid development and deployment of renewable energy worldwide.

IRENA believes that renewable energy use must, and will increase dramatically in the coming years, because of its key role in:

  • enhancing energy security
  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change
  • alleviating energy poverty
  • supporting sustainable development, and
  • boosting economic growth.

IRENA’s vision is for a world where modern and effective renewable energy is accessible in all countries and becomes one of the major energy sources.

For a world, where renewable energy technologies are widely deployed and are seen as one of the key energy solutions of the future by all countries.

A world, where the communities currently without reliable energy supply can rely on renewable energy as the base for their economic and social development.Visit the IRENA website to learn more
