Falling technology costs, mounting investments and renewable energy capacity additions outpacing nuclear and fossil energy are all signals that the global transition towards a renewable power sector is underway. To accelerate this growth, electricity systems worldwide must transition to frameworks that embrace new business models and promote the deployment of innovative technologies.

IRENA’s Innovation Week is a first-of-its-kind event gathering the industrial and political frontrunners to present, discuss and explore innovative solutions within this year’s theme – “The Age of Renewable Power”. The focus of discussions will be on how technological innovations, operational innovation and systemic innovations in policy, regulation and business, interact and re-enforce each other.

IRENA Innovation Week Summary Report and Conclusions are now available (NEW). Please see here
