The sixth session of the Assembly

On 16-17 January, government officials from over 150 countries and representatives from the private sector, civil society and international organisations gathered in Abu Dhabi for the 6th IRENA Assembly. This was the first international conference held post-COP21, and helped move the Paris Agreement to the next phase: action and implementation.

The Assembly focused on several key elements to accelerate the renewable energy transition, including finance and investment, innovation and the power sector transformation. Continuing on from the solutions theme at COP21, the Assembly highlighted a portfolio of IRENA tools and resources that can help support countries, businesses and investors in scaling up renewable energy worldwide.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Agency also hosted the Financial Times-IRENA Question Time Debate on the evening of the 17th, which provided a unique opportunity for lively discussion of the international renewable energy agenda. The 2016 edition brought together leaders from government and the private sector to share their experiences on how they have prioritised renewable energy for climate change mitigation and how such action might be accelerated.
