ICLEI and IRENA collaborates on 'Renewable energy policies in cities: Selected case studies'

January 28, 2013

Around the world, only a relatively few number of local governments have
developed policies and mechanisms specifically aimed at utilizing renewable
energy resources. IRENA and ICLEI collaborated to produce seven case
studies to present different policy tools available to local governments to
harvest the renewable energy potential. ICLEI has been the proud
implementing partner for the International Renewable Energy Agency
(IRENA), an intergovernmental organization dedicated to renewable energy.
Renewable energy policies in cities:

Featured cities include: Austin (USA), Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Chemnitz
(Germany), Dezhou (China), Nagpur (India), Malmö (Sweden), Sao Paulo
(Brazil), Sydney (Australia).
