IEA/IRENA Joint Policies and Measures Database for Global Renewable Energy

Since 1999 the International Energy Agency (IEA) gathers information on policies and measures supporting the deployment of renewable energies and offers free-of-charge access to gathered data to the general public via its Policies and Measures Database websites.

From the onset, the Database provided information on policies in plave in OECD countries. After a continued increase in geographic coverage, the IEA joined forces with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in 2012 to allow for collaborative data gathering of OECD and non-OECD countries.  Twice a year, IEA and IRENA update the database on using information supplied directly from member governments. These collaborative efforts allowed for creation of the largest dataset on policies and measures supporting the development and deployment of renewable energies worldwide.

Currently the Database covers 116 countries and stores information on almost 2000 policies.

The IEA/IRENA Joint Policies and Measures Database for Global Renewable Energy is the only country-validated, free-of-charge on-line source available to the general public.
