The objectives of the Working Party on Renewable Energy Technologies (REWP) are to consider policies, market issues and technologies related to renewable energy sources and hydrogen. The REWP co-ordinates the RD&D efforts of Energy Technology Initiatives (ETIs) in renewable energy, in particular with regard to deployment.
