2019 International Renewable Energy Conference (IREC)

2019 International Renewable Energy Conference (IREC)

23 October 2019 - 26 October 2019


At this international high-level policy event, REN21 invites leaders from across society to meet and discuss policies and experiences. The focus is on building collective know-how to advance renewables at the international, national and sub-national levels.

Inspired by the 2004 renewables conference in Bonn, each IREC involves representatives from business, governments, civil society, science and academia all whom participate in discussions and debates – with the objective of advancing the global energy transition to renewables. The IREC is hosted by a national government and is held biennially.

The next conference will take place October 2019, in the Republic of Korea. For the first time in its history, the IREC will be hosted by both a country and a municipality (Seoul).
