German Federal Foreign Office hosted a ceremony of signing of the Statute of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) by Uzbekistan. The Ambassador of Uzbekistan in Germany, Bakhtiyar Gulyamov signed the Statute of IRENA.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) was officially established in Bonn on 26 January 2009. Up-to-date, 104 States have signed the Statute of the Agency.
Mandated by these governments worldwide, IRENA aspires to become the main driving force for promoting a rapid transition towards the widespread and sustainable use of renewable energy on a global scale.
As the global voice for renewable energies, IRENA envisages providing practical advice and support for both industrialised and developing countries, thereby helping to improve frameworks and build capacity.
Moreover, the Agency intends to facilitate access to all relevant information, including reliable data on the potentials for renewable energy, best practices, effective financial mechanisms, and state-of-the-art technological expertise.
