IRENA at the World Utilities Congress

The World Utilities Congress brought together energy ministers, policymakers, global CEOs and business leaders from around the globe to share their insights and perspectives on the industry affairs today and come up with tangible outputs for the current challenges.

IRENA Director-General, Francesco la Camera, was a speaker at the Ministerial session on Enabling a Just Energy Transition: Bridging the North-South Divide Enroute COP28.

In addition, IRENA hosted the IRENA Youth Talk on "Promoting a Just Energy Transition powered by Youth Innovation",  bringing together senior experts and young people to explore innovative solutions for a sustainable energy future. During the event, IRENA announced the launch of a new programme aimed at providing tangible support for young people with innovative solutions and ideas that can accelerate a just energy transition. By providing training, mentorship, and other resources, the programme aims to help young people turn their ideas into reality and make a real impact in the energy sector. 

IRENA invites all conference participants to visit the Pavilion, browse our publications and engage in conversation on the renewable-based energy transition.
