IRENA Member MapThe International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is a young, but globally operating intergovernmental organisation. The first general assembly was held only five years ago in April 2011, after a three-year preparation period. Since its founding, IRENA has welcomed 149 member states (see the map), and accession negotiations have been underway for another 27. Since 2014, the organisation has passed a biennial work programme, with the current one covering 2016-2017 (see the attached document). The projected budget for these two years is USD 89.5 million, split among six thematic areas and two administrative ones.

IRENAIt was a busy Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) this January: It started with the fourth assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), which brought together 1,200 high-profile attendants on 17 and 18 January 2015, and went on with the four-day World Future Energy Summit between 19 and 22 January, a summit that offered a renewable technology exhibition, as well as a series of conferences and debates on all technological and political issues regarding today’s renewable industries. The organisers expected around 32,000 visitors from 170 countries. “The next wave of disruptive changes is happening in energy,” Adnan Z. Amin, Director-General of IRENA, said during the FT IRENA Question Time Debate on 18 January 2015.
