Data & Statistics

Detailed, accurate and timely renewable energy statistics are essential for the development, monitoring and evaluation of renewables related activities. IRENA helps analysts, policy makers and the public make informed decisions by providing access to comprehensive and up to date renewable energy data.

The statistics unit publishes detailed renewable energy capacity and generation statistics covering all renewable energy technologies for every country in the world. In addition, renewable energy balances are also published for a number of countries

This data is collected directly from members using the IRENA Renewable Energy Statistics questionnaire and is also supplemented by desk research where official statistics are not available.

The unit also provides support to members in strengthening their data collection and reporting activities through training and methodological guidance.

We welcome the engagement of statistical focal points in member countries. For further information on statistics activities please contact statistics@irena.org
