A technical training on renewable energy statistics for energy statisticians from the Central Asia region. The objective of the training was to improve the availability and quality of national renewable energy statistics.
This three-day technical training on renewable energy statistics is aimed at energy statisticians from across the region with the objective of improving the availability and quality of national renewable energy statistics.
IRENA held a technical training on renewable energy statistics for statisticians from the MENA Region. The training aimed to improve the availability of reliable information about renewable energy through a combination of technical lectures by experts from IRENA, the International Energy Agency, the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia.
In collaboration with the Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre (APERC), IRENA organised a three-day workshop on renewable energy statistics. The training aimed at helping countries to collect, validate and analyse renewable energy statistics, following current best practices and internationally agreed definitions and methodologies used for energy statistics.
In collaboration with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, IRENA held a workshop on bioenergy statistics bringing together forestry and energy statisticians from 25 countries in Europe and North America. The workshop aimed at improving the availability and quality of bioenergy statistics in the UNECE region by exploring the opportunities for strengthening collaboration and harmonising data collection in this rapidly expanding area.
Twenty-four delegates from nine countries in Southern Africa shared their experiences with the collection of renewable energy statistics. Participants included representatives of national statistical offices, energy ministries and electricity companies. IRENA gratefully acknowledges the support given by the Swaziland Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy in agreeing to host this workshop.
This three-day technical training, organised in partnership with the UAE National Bureau of Statistics, was designed for statisticians from the Emirates’ statistical agencies and other key stakeholders. The objective was to improve the availability and quality of UAE renewable energy statistics.
This consultation brought together a working group of experts from select countries and international organizations to share their experience of various approaches to bioenergy data collection and provide inputs to the new IRENA guidance on bioenergy statistics that is currently under development.
