The REN Alliance was formed in 2004 during the first International Renewable Energy Conference in Bonn, Germany. The REN-Alliance brings together five renewable industry organizations to promote the use of renewable energy technologies worldwide: the International Hydropower Association, the International Geothermal Association, the International Solar Energy Society, the World Bioenergy Association, and the World Wind Energy Association.
Since our formation, the REN-Alliance we have been reporting on and promoting how renewable energy technologies can work together to meet global energy security, economic, and environmental challenges.
Together, we work towards a world where our energy needs are met by renewable sources.
A renewable energy future is possible if we combine the strengths of different technologies. Our mission is to demonstrate how renewables can work together in different local, national and regional contexts to meet the world’s energy needs.
Our strategic objectives
- To use our extensive networks to actively seek out technical solutions for meeting energy demand with renewables
- To communicate and share our knowledge on combined renewable technologies to the high-level international policy arena
- To advance strategies for the contribution of renewables to achieving UN Sustainable Development Goal 7, to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
