Please welcome IRENA !

To the UNEP : ” Renewable energy was given a boost with the opening of the first General Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) which opened in Abu Dhabi on Monday.

The two-day meeting with 800 delegates from 150 countries confirmed in its first session that Abu Dhabi would host the new intergovernmental organization that will advocate for renewable energy worldwide.

Established two years ago, IRENA is backed by both the developed and developing world as a key new catalyst towards the expansion of renewable energy.” We can thus wish them all the success they need.
