Partnership Overview | Objectives

REN21 is a global policy network that provides a forum for international leadership on renewable energy. Its goal is to bolster policy development for the rapid expansion of renewable energies in developing and industrialised economies.

Open to a wide variety of dedicated stakeholders, REN21 connects governments, international institutions, non-governmental organisations, industry associations, and other partnerships and initiatives.

Linking the energy, development and environment sectors, REN21 strengthens the influence of the unique renewable energy community that came together at the ?renewables 2004? conference in Bonn. REN21 is the network in which ideas are shared and action is encouraged to promote renewable energy worldwide.
