Japan, holding the G20 presidency in 2019, asked the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) for a status and outlook report on these variable renewable energy (VRE) sources. IRENA has engaged with successive G20 presidencies since 2015 on a toolkit for renewable energy deployment.
A collaborative campaign, launched at the 9th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) in May 2018 and co-ordinated by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), calls for wider adoption and improved use of model-based LTES. This brochure highlights findings from the first-year of the LTES campaign.
This joint tracking report provides the most comprehensive look available at the world’s progress towards global energy targets on access to electricity, clean cooking, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
This outlook shows how through smart charging EV batteries can help to integrate high shares of solar and wind power into existing grids, as battery storage capacity helps to even out the variability of these sources.
A FlexTool study on Thailand's power system suggests cost-efficient investment options and provides a sensitivity analysis to find ways to reach high shares of renewables.
Increased use of renewable energy, combined with intensified electrification, could prove decisive for the world to meet key climate goals by 2050.
This study reviews the bioenergy potential from sugarcane and associated development costs in seven sugar-producing countries in the Southern African Development Community (SADC), aiming to provide a foundation for more detailed country-level studies exploring practical potential.
Active forest management has helped to boost bioenergy resources. Swedish experience offers valuable lessons for emerging markets.
This report maps and categorises innovative solutions to integrate renewables. It brings together insights on key innovations to facilitate higher shares of solar and wind in the power sector.
The Republic of Moldova has vast renewable energy potential that remains largely untapped. Greater use of renewables would reduce costly fuel imports and boost the country’s economic development.
