European Association for Renewable Energy (EUROSOLAR)

Eurosolar englisch transparentThe European Association for Renewable Energy (EUROSOLAR) was founded in 1988 as a non-profit organisation that promotes the replacement of nuclear and fossil energies with Renewable Energy sources. Its members are private individuals as well as legal bodies that include numerous parliamentarians (from regional parliaments up to the European Parliament), scientists, architects, engineers, skilled manual workers, farmers, citizens dedicated to the widespread use of Renewable Energy, Renewable Energy companies, Renewable Energy associations, scientific institutes, trade unions, regional and local governments, municipal and county administrations. EUROSOLAR develops political and economic strategies and concepts, including legal frameworks, for the introduction of Renewable Energy. It promotes a broad-based socio-cultural European movement in support of Renewable Energy, the mobilising of new political and industrial forces as well as environmentally sustainable architecture. It addresses a wide section of the public by giving lectures, publishing articles, conducting consistent public relations and by arranging high-profile conferences. The President of EUROSOLAR, Prof. Peter Droege, has also been appointed as General Chairman of the WCRE.

International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)

irena logoThe International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future, and serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, a centre of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy. IRENA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy, including bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, ocean, solar and wind energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon economic growth and prosperity. With a mandate from countries around the world, IRENA encourages governments to adopt enabling policies for renewable energy investments, provides practical tools and policy advice to accelerate renewable energy deployment, and facilitates knowledge sharing and technology transfer to provide clean, sustainable energy for the world’s growing population.

Global 100%RE

100re logoGlobal 100%RE is a global platform advocating 100% renewable energy. It connects the fragmented dots of renewable energy advocates to build a global alliance, proving that being powered by 100% sustainable renewable energy is urgent and achievable. Hereby the platform carries out the “Global 100% RE Campaign” building on initiatives that already take place on national, regional and local level and steers the global discourse on renewable energy towards 100% RE as the new normal. The goal is to initiate dialogue about 100% RE, build capacity and educate policymakers about the opportunities, case studies and stories that are happening all over the world. For this purpose the platform aims to establish a global network of 100% RE regions.

American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE)

ACOREThe American Council for Renewable Energy (ACRE) has been formally founded in Washington D.C., USA 2002 as a unifying voice for Renewable Energy in America, and as the American participant in the WCRE. The mission of ACRE is to mainstream Renewable Energy into America’s economy and lifestyle. ACRE is creating a national forum of leaders from the public and private sectors, building a greater sense of common purpose among the Renewable Energy community and related communities, and assembling and promoting better information about the benefits of Renewable Energy. ACRE fosters public policies and business strategies that promote Renewable Energy. It establishes programs among its members to remove the barriers to greater use of Renewable Energy, and encourage Renewable Energy solutions as part of a more energy efficient economy. The key to ACRE’s success is to build on and complement, not duplicate, the work of existing associations and organisations. The Acting Chairman of ACRE, Mr. Michael T. Eckhart, is member of the Chairmen Committee of the WCRE.

Climate for Peace

Climate for Peace is a global knowledge platform which aims to generate knowledge and bring together resources to build the evidence base on climate change and fragility.
