Intersolar Europe 2016
20-24 June 2016
Intersolar is the world’s leading trade exhibition for the solar industry and its partners. It is linked this year to EU PVSEC, the world’s largest conference in the field of photovoltaics (PV), which uniquely combines scientific, technological, industrial and application-related issues from the perspective of research and development, industry and politics.
IRENA has partnered with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ) to highlight key research and promotional activities for solar PV in both on- and off-grid contexts, for islands and in other settings.
IRENA plans the following new publication releases during the conference:
• End-of-life: Solar PV panels;
• Letting in the Light: How solar photovoltaics will revolutionise the electricity system - a joint publication with IEA PVPS Task 12.
More information about the event may be found on the event's website.
A half-day workshop dedicated to the Photovoltaic End-of-Life Management will take place at the jointly hosted EU PVSEC Conference on June 21.
Second Technical Workshop for REmap ASEAN
22-24 June 2016
The ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and IRENA are conducting a study on the renewable energy outlook for the ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) region. The joint study will use IRENA’s REmap analytical tools, building on the Fourth ASEAN Energy Outlook (AEO4).
The database workshop planned for 23-24 June addresses stakeholders and collaborators in the country-level analysis process for REmap, IRENA’s global renewable energy roadmap. This is the second of two regional REMap workshops meant to bring together energy experts and data analysis from ASEAN countries. The first took place on 14 March in the Philippine capital, Manila.
The IRENA and ACE study has been made possible by the Renewable Energy Support Programme for ASEAN (ASEAN RESP), a jointly implemented project by ACE and the German International Co-operation Agency (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ).
