About Renewable Energy

The Group of Experts on Renewable Energy was established to carry out action-oriented, practical activities on renewable energy in line with the UN Secretary General’s Sustainable Energy for All Initiative.

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 UNECE region. The Group of Experts 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 renewable energy in the global energy mix.

Highlights

Menu of Efficient and Economic Technologies and Policies to Promote Them in the ECE Region is here proposed as a working document  for a framework to exchange best practices in policies in order to accelerate renewable energy uptake in the region. It is the basis for a practical tool for collection, classification, exchange and use of information on concrete cases.
