IRENA and Siemens Energy sign partnership agreement


The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Siemens Energy have signed a partnership agreement aimed at speeding up the global energy transition.

The organizations will strengthen their collaboration on the application of technology to advance and deepen the global transition to renewable energy under the terms of the agreement.

The broad scope of collaboration includes developing the business case for green hydrogen as a major contributor to deep decarbonisation, advancing joint efforts to promote heat generation and industrial processes, decarbonizing hard-to-decarbonize industries such as cement, steel, and petrochemicals, and facilitating private sector investment in renewables.

IRENA and Siemens will also share their knowledge and expertise in the field of renewable energy, including the development of roadmaps that prioritize communities and regions that currently lack access to modern energy.

“Partnerships are the cornerstone of global efforts to achieve the sustainable development goals and key to the rapid acceleration of the global energy transition,” said Francesco La Camera, Director-General of IRENA. “This public-private initiative is representative of a shared a vision for a low-carbon energy future and of a joint commitment to meaningful action.” 

“This partnership leverages and amplifies both of our organisations’ strengths to accelerate the energy transition,” said Christian Bruch, CEO of Siemens Energy. “Action to tackle climate change is a global imperative. Our best chance of success is through strong partnerships with dedicated organisations.” 

“We believe that innovative technologies are the key to combating climate change,” he continued. “The energy transition is a considerable challenge which requires great change but offers significant potential.”
