The world’s transition to renewable energy sources is a defining trend of our time. It requires fundamental transformation in the supply, distribution, consumption and management of energy. While substantial growth in renewable energy deployment is already taking place, the global energy transition is of such scale and pace that a significant level of international collaboration is required to succeed.
In January 2014, IRENA and 35 players in renewable energy from around the world jointly established a Coalition for Action to promote the wider and faster uptake of renewable energy technologies.
The IRENA Coalition for Action forms a key international network to discuss industry trends, determine actions, share knowledge and exchange best practices for the global energy transformation. It aims to convene a global dialogue amongst non-governmental and governmental stakeholders to develop actions to drive the energy transition forward. Today, the Coalition brings together over 70 leading players including private companies, industry associations, civil society, research institutes and intergovernmental organisations.
IRENA acts as the Secretariat of the Coalition.
