IRENA Innovation And Technology Centre
The IRENA Innovation and Technology Centre (IITC) aims to provide the governments the means for an accelerated technological change and the use of innovation to transition to renewable energy based systems. This will be achieved through analysis of renewable energy technology policies; dissemination of information and increased awareness; technologies and equipment overview and assessment of success-failure factors; improved relevant knowledge and technology cooperation, and joint RD&D and provision of information on the development and deployment of national and international technical standards in relation to renewable energy.
The IITC programme consists of two main activity areas:
- Assist governments on request in energy planning for more efficient and effective renewable energy technology and innovation strategies
- Facilitate a better understanding of cost and cost reductions through technology development and market deployment to accelerate renewables uptake
