Johannesburg Renewable Energy Coalition

Welcome to the site of the Johannesburg Renewable Energy Coalition. The JREC is a coalition of Governments that are committed to achieving the commitments on renewable energy made at the World Summit for Sustainable Development (WSSD) which took place at Johannesburg (South-Africa) in 2002. The JREC is co-chaired by the European Commission and the Government of Morocco.

This site is serviced by the European Commission which hosts the JREC Secretariat. Our task is to facilitate effective co-operation and co-ordination amongst JREC Members. In addition to publishing JREC related News and Conferences, the site features information related to the JREC Objectives and Members, as well as JREC initiatives related to Targets, Policies and Measures, and Guiding Investments and Developing Markets, including the JREC Strategic Roadmap. You also find a range of downloadable documents.

We encourage active co-operation with other renewable energy and energy efficiency partnerships, public and private sector organizations and NGOs. They help us to ensure that JREC’s political agenda reflects the market needs and that our political ambitions are translated into concrete actions in the field. We therefore maintain links with many related international initiatives and organizations active in the field of renewable energy.

We would very much welcome your comments and suggestions which can be sent to
