  • Interview Adnan Amin, head of IRENA: "Everything we see is pointing to transformational change"

    "Everything we are seeing is pointing to transformational change in the energy sector", says Adnan Z. Amin, Director-General of IRENA. “We don’t need a miracle, it’s already happening.” Amin, under whose leadership IRENA has become the world’s fastest-growing intergovernmental organisation with over 170 member countries, says that renewables are growing much faster than most people realise.

  • European offshore wind developers join forces with the Carbon Trust to slash costs of offshore wind

    The Carbon Trust revealed details of a new European phase of its world-leading Offshore Wind Accelerator programme. Over the next four years the developers will collectively invest at least £6.4 million, boosted by a further £1.5 million from the Scottish Government. The investment will bring new innovations to market that will help to ensure that the typical cost of offshore wind is below £100 per MWh by 2020. Offshore wind offers greater economic and employment opportunities. Estimates from IRENA show that jobs in the European offshore wind industry increased twelvefold between 2007 (6,370) to 2014 (75,000).
