Second International Off-grid Renewable Energy Conference and Exhibition
16-17 June 2014
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) are co-organising the 2nd International Off-grid Renewable Energy Conference and Exhibition (IOREC) in Manila on 16-17 June. The conference will take place alongside the 9th Asia Clean Energy Forum.
Following the success of the first IOREC
in Accra, Ghana, in 2012, the conference is expanding as a global platform to explore off-grid renewable energy possibilities. The IOREC conference series encourages dialogue among stakeholders, and particularly between the public and private sectors, to promote off-grid renewable energy deployment as a way to extend electricity access in rural and peri-urban areas that currently lack modern energy services.
The Transformative Power of Storage: Developing IRENA’s Electricity Storage Roadmap
27 March 2014
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) will hold a policy and regulation workshop on energy storage in Dusseldorf, Germany, on 27 March. This takes place alongside Energy Storage Europe 2014
, the third annual International Conference and Exhibition for the Storage of Renewable Energies (25-27 March, Dusseldorf).
The workshop focuses on key energy storage technologies and applications to support the accelerated deployment of renewable energy, as well as to identify applications, best practices and lessons that should be highlighted in IRENA’s global technology roadmap for electricity storage. Participants will include policy makers, industry representatives, academics and other relevant stakeholders. The workshop will be limited to around 50 people.
