International Energy Forum
Global Energy Security
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) is a commercially oriented agency established on 1 July 2012 by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency Act 2011. The Agency’s objectives are to improve the competitiveness of renewable energy technologies, and increase the supply of renewable energy in Australia. Its vision is for an Australian economy and society increasingly powered by competitive renewable energy. It encourages and engages in knowledge sharing to help the renewable energy industry and other stakeholders learn from each other’s experiences.
Carbon Trust (UK)
The Carbon Trust is an independent partner of leading organisations around the world, helping them contribute to and benefit from a more sustainable future through carbon reduction, resource efficiency strategies and commercialising low carbon technologies.
Clean Energy Ministerial
The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a global forum to share best practices and promote policies and programs that encourage and facilitate the transition to a global clean energy economy. The 23 participating CEM countries and the European Commission together account for about 75 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and 90 percent of global clean energy investment. They are the world’s leaders in clean energy research, development, and implementation.
Clean Energy Solutions Center
The Clean Energy Solutions Center helps governments design and adopt policies and programs that support the deployment of clean energy technologies by offering no-cost expert policy assistance, webinars and training forums, clean energy policy reports, data, and tools provided in partnership with more than 35 leading international and regional clean energy organisations.
The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy is responsible for developing and implementing a European energy policy aimed at contributing to setting up an energy market providing citizens and business with affordable energy, competitive prices and technologically advanced energy services. It also promotes sustainable energy production, transport and consumption in line with the EU 2020 targets and with a view to the 2050 decarbonisation objective seeks to enhance the conditions for safe and secure energy supply in a spirit of solidarity between EU countries. This is a link to its renewable energy resource page.
EcoWatch [News Site]
EcoWatch is a website reporting on environmental news, green living, sustainable business,science and politics. It also features content from renowned environmental and business leaders via its Insights blog.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) collects, analyses, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.
European Union Renewable Energy
The EU aims to get 20% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. Renewables include wind, solar, hydro-electric and tidal power as well as geothermal energy and biomass. More renewable energy will enable the EU to cut greenhouse emissions and make it less dependent on imported energy, and boosting the renewables industry will encourage technological innovation and employment in Europe.
European Wind Energy Association
EWEA actively promotes wind power in Europe and worldwide. It has over 600 members, active in over 50 countries, including wind turbine manufacturers with a leading share of the world wind power market, plus component suppliers, research institutes, national wind and renewables associations, developers, contractors, electricity providers, finance and insurance companies, and consultants.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an autonomous organisation which works to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 29 member countries and beyond. The IEA has four main areas of focus: energy security, economic development, environmental awareness and engagement worldwide. This is the IEA’s Renewables resource page.
IEA Bioenergy’s vision is to achieve a substantial bioenergy contribution to future global energy demands by accelerating the production and use of environmentally sound, socially accepted and cost-competitive bioenergy on a sustainable basis, thus providing increased security of supply whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy use.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future, and serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, a centre of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy.
IRENA RESOURCE is an extensive renewable energy portal offering access to data and statistics, country profiles, and material relating to a broad range of renewable energy sources.
The U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is a federal laboratory dedicated to the research, development, commercialisation, and deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.
The Renewable Energy Association (REA) was established in 2001 as a not-for-profit trade association, representing British renewable energy producers and promoting the use of renewable energy in the UK. The REA helps its members build commercially and environmentally sustainable businesses whilst increasing the contribution of renewable energy to the UK’s electricity, heat, transport and green gas needs.
RenewableEnergyWorld.com [News Site]
RenewableEnergyWorld.com was started in 1998 by a group of Renewable Energy professionals. The site offers extensive news coverage of renewable energy sources and claims to be the World's #1 Renewable Energy Network for News, Information, and Companies on the Internet.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s mission is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions. This page is devoted to the study and understanding of renewable energy.
The World Resources Institute’s (WRI) stated mission is to move human society to live in ways that protect Earth’s environment and its capacity to provide for the needs and aspirations of current and future generations.
