United States Joins the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–March 4, 2011.  The United States today deposited its instrument of acceptance to join the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), becoming the 63rd member. IRENA formed in 2009 in response to growing international interest in the adoption of renewable energy technologies to meet the challenges of sustained economic growth, energy security and climate change. IRENA’s mission is to support and expedite member countries’ transition to greater renewable energy use by helping identify and facilitate adoption of appropriate and optimal policies, business practices and technologies.

To date, 148 countries are IRENA signatories. The United States is the 63rd country to ratify the IRENA statute.

Headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, IRENA is the first truly international organization based in an Arab country. In addition to the Headquarters in Abu Dhabi, IRENA also has a Liaison Office in Vienna, Austria, and an IRENA Innovation and Technology Center in Bonn, Germany.
