In line with the “Sustainable Energy for All” Initiative of the United Nations Secretary General, the Group of Experts on Renewable Energy focuses on activities that help significantly increase the uptake of renewable energy in the region and that help achieve the objective of access to energy for all in the ECE region. The Group facilitates regulatory and policy dialogue and sharing of best practices on various renewable energy sources, including biomass, with a view to increasing the share of renewables in the global energy mix.
Within the preparatory work for the first meeting of the Group of Experts on Renewable Energy which will take place on 18-19 November 2014, an informal preparatory meeting took place on 26 June 2014 in Geneva with the Bureau candidates and selected experts from member States and key stakeholders, including international organizations. The objectives of the meeting were to launch the preparatory activities and to consider the roles of ECE and the Group of Experts in addition to and in partnership with already established players in the renewable energy space.
