The IEA provides support for international collaboration on energy technology R&D, deployment and information dissemination. These groups function within a framework created by the IEA - the International Framework for International Energy Technology Collaboration. The views, findings and publications of these international groups (formally called Implementing Agreements) do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or of all its individual member countries. OECD Member countries, autonomous OECD non-member countries, intergovernmental organisations, non-governmental organisations and private sector entities may participate. For more information, see our Technology Agreements page.

Renewable Energy Technology Deployment

The Implementing Agreement for Renewable Energy Technology Deployment (RETD) engages in collaborative activities seeking to advance renewable energy technology improvement and cost reduction for all renewable energy technologies by facilitating international deployment efforts. RETD Vision Significantly higher utilisation of renewable energy technologies will result from international cooperation encouraging more rapid and efficient deployment. RETD Mission To measurably improve cooperation between participating governments in identifying cross-cutting barriers to deployment and providing “best practice” solutions, thus strengthening international collaboration for technology deployment. To provide guidance to the private sector and policy makers on innovative business strategies and projects that encourage technology deployment by fostering public-private partnership projects. To inform and facilitate ongoing international dialogue and public awareness of renewable energy deployment by contributing concrete examples on deployment solutions.
