This report explains how IRENA approached the challenges of data collection to produce the estimates of off-grid energy production and use. An overview of the data collected and detailed tables are provided.
Panama has vast potential to develop renewables. The National Energy Plan suggests that as much as 70% of the country’s energy supply could be renewable by 2050.
Panamá tiene un gran potencial para desarrollar energías renovables. El Plan Nacional de Energía sugiere que hasta un 70% del suministro de energía del país podría ser renovable en 2050.
This report presents the status of renewable energy employment, both by technology and in selected countries, over the past year. In this fourth edition, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) finds that renewable energy employed 9.8 million people around the world in 2016 – a 1.1% increase over 2015.
Islands around the world face crucial energy challenges, including fuel import dependency, high electricity costs, environmental sensitivity and vulnerability to climate change.
This field guide presents various methodologies for estimating biogas capacity, production and consumption. Such information can be integrated into national censuses, household surveys and energy surveys.
This report highlights the role of islands in global efforts against climate change. It highlights transitions to renewables in the power, including planning and implementation, enabling business models and transition tools.
Antigua and Barbuda possesses abundant renewable energy resources, including considerable solar, wind, biomass and ocean potential. This Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) presents a set of clear and practical steps for these islands to maximise renewables in the energy mix.
The report offers a comprehensive review of the status and trends in the region’s renewable energy development. It highlights Latin America’s wealth of knowledge, draws key lessons, and outlines findings to support the continued expansion of renewables for power generation, transport and other end-uses.
IRENA’s Renewable Energy Innovation Outlook series analyses the emerging developments making renewable energy technologies (RETs) increasingly competitive in the world’s energy markets and systems.
