Transforming the power sector: New report about integrating renewable energy
The Commission hosts a launch event of a report on innovations that will transform the power sector on Tuesday 19 February in Brussels. The report "Innovation Landscape for a Renewable-Powered Future: solutions to integrate variable renewables” by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) will be presented by IRENA Director-General Adnan Z. Amin in the presence of Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete. With its "Clean Energy for All Europeans" –package the EU has already started the modernisation and transformation towards a climate neutral economy. Implementing the package will further boost innovation, and the EU can continue to show leadership and support the rest of the world by exporting innovative solutions in the fight against climate change. The Commission's vision "Clean Planet for All" aims at modernising the EU’s economy making it the first major economy to become climate neutral by 2050. The vision foresees a central role for renewable energy in this transition. IRENA is the global intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a renewable energy future, and serves as a platform for international co-operation and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy.
