International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)


Iea/Irena Global Renewable Energy Policies And Measures Database



The following text is found at--


On 16 January 2012 IRENA and the International Energy Agency (IEA) have agreed on the collaborative development of a joint IEA/IRENA renewable energy policies and measures database. The joint database aims at expanding the scope of the existing IEA dataset by capitalizing on IRENA’s global membership while avoiding duplication of work.


The joint IEA/IRENA database will provide an overview of global status on renewable energy policies as well as country specific policy profiles, which will meet the increasing demand from policy makers, researchers, and general public for accurate, timely, easily accessible information on renewable energy policies and measures.


At present, the IEA database contains over 1,100 data entries on renewable energy policies and measures that are being implemented in 72 countries around the world. Through collaboration between IEA and IRENA, it is expected that several dozens of countries and their data entries could be added to the database, given that over 100 countries are currently implementing some type of policies and measures to promote renewable energy at the national or local level.
