The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has welcomed aboard a new partner
in global efforts to provide education, e-learning and training materials to build
job skills for the growing renewable energy sector. The IRENA Renewable Energy Learning
Partnership (IRELP, www.irelp.org
now includes the Paris-based Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century
(REN21), a global network connecting governments, industry, academia and civil society.
The new partnership builds on a recent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed
by IRENA and REN21, reflecting their shared vision for the widespread deployment
of renewable energy technologies.
