IRENA Innovation Week: The Age of Renewable Power
10-13 May 2016
Government and industry have agreed on the need for a clean energy revolution to keep climate change in check. But what technologies should we focus on? And what still hinders key technological breakthroughs? IRENA Innovation Week aims to develop a unified vision, along with sector-specific strategies, to find innovative solutions and accelerate renewable energy deployment.
The theme for 2016 is “The Age of Renewable Power: Centralised, Distributed or Supergrids?”. This is the first of what is intended to be an annual event; each year, a different theme will be chosen.

Mobilising Sustainable Bioenergy Supply Chains in Agriculture
17 May 2016
IRENA is co-organising this event with IEA Bioenergy (the International Energy Agency’s implementing agreement on bioenergy) and the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO). The idea is to build consensus that bioenergy can make a major contribution to global and regional energy supplies while also helping to meet the world’s growing food needs. Sessions will focus on sustainable biomass potential, strategies for jointly increasing food and fuel yields, and biogas from agricultural residues for rural development. The event will be hosted by Gestore dei Servizio Energetici (GSE).
