GECF Secretary General and IRENA Director General Meet
On September 8th, Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) Secretary General Dr. Yury Sentyurin met with the Director General of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Mr. Francesco La Camera – who assumed the post earlier this year - for a working meeting.
IRENA is an intergovernmental organization that offers a platform for collaboration between nations and supports countries on their path towards sustainable development. It stimulates governments to enable conducive policies for investment in renewable energy and provides instruments and guidance to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy.
Since natural gas can be used as a complimentary energy source for renewables, there is a clear alignment for both entities.
The conversation revolved around the possibilities for cooperation, joint research, and and other topics of common concern for both energy organizations.
