IRENA Coalition for Action
The IRENA Coalition for Action forms a key international network to discuss industry trends, determine actions, share knowledge and exchange best practices with the vision to drive the global energy transition in line with the Sustainable Development Goal on energy. Its mission is to convene a global dialogue amongst non-governmental and governmental stakeholders to develop actions to increasing the share of renewables in the global energy mix.
Today, the Coalition brings together over 80 leading renewable energy players including private sector companies, industry associations, civil society, research institutes and intergovernmental organizations. IRENA acts as the Secretariat of the Coalition that consists of four working groups. REVOLVE is part of the Communication and Outreach Working Group that facilitates the alignment of communication messages among Coalition members and amplifies Coalition members’ events and activities. The communication group also creates joint communication campaigns such as the Renewables4Climate campaign at COP23 in 2017. In 2018, the Group will focus on two joint campaigns: Renewables4Development and a second Renewables4Climate campaign.
REVOLVE and Greenovate!Europe are based in the same building – the Renewable Energy House – in Brussels. Greenovate! Europe is membership-based association consisting of 21 members and associate members specialized in the bioeconomy, renewables, communication and the energy transition at large. Greenovate! Europe covers all parts of the innovation value chain, bringing together the expertise required for technology and service developers to successfully transfer research to market, and for policy-makers to create an environment in which eco-innovative business can thrive. To this end, we bring together over 500 experienced innovation advisers and 2,000 technical experts from 14 countries, providing all of the expertise needed to support the innovation process.
With its headquarters in Beijing, China, the Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO), is an international organization consisted of over 100 members from industry associations, global institutions and corporations that are dedicated to promoting the sustainable development of energy worldwide. The purpose of GEIDCO is to promote the establishment of a Global Energy Interconnection (GEI) system, to meet the global demand for electricity in a clean and green way, to implement the United Nations “Sustainable Energy for All” and climate change initiatives. GEIDCO formulates GEI development plans, promote the creation of a GEI technical standards framework, organizes collaborative efforts in research and innovation, provides key studies, international communication and cooperation, engineering project implementation, and consulting services to implement the GEI. Going forward, GEI will promote South-South and South-North cooperation, and help transform the resource advantage into economic advantage in regions like Asia, Africa and South America. This will help address power shortage and poverty, narrow regional gap and difference. Life will be better as the world gradually turns into a bright, peaceful and harmonious global village with sufficient energy, blue sky and green land.
