Working Party on Renewable Energy Technologies (REWP)

The objectives of the 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 IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes (IEA TCPs) in renewable energy, in particular with regard to deployment. The REWP also ensures government-private sector dialogue by monitoring the role of finance and markets through the Renewable Industry Advisory Board (RIAB), an informal body created by the Committee on Energy Research and Technology (CERT) in June 2011. Finally, the REWP maintains close ties with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
