May 11-13 2016, IRENA hosted its first-ever Innovation Week in Bonn, Germany, gathering industrial and political front runners to present, discuss and explore innovative solutions within this year’s theme – The Age of Renewable Power. Event attendees worked to answer four key questions on renewable energy innovation in the power sector.
- What specific opportunities and challenges are considered within your country?
- What are the relevant innovations for your constituency?
- What are the priority areas for policy development to support and guide innovation efforts?
- Which gaps in international cooperation should be bridged and how?
Responses will be fed into a ‘Global Innovation Agenda’ document to be shared in June, so stay tuned.
