IEA Renewable Industry Advisory Board (RIAB)

RES4Med&Africa took part of the Annual Meeting of the International Energy Agency (IEA)‘s Renewable Industry Advisory Board (RIAB), which took place in Paris on 2 April 2019. Roberto Vigotti, RES4Med&Africa Secretary General and RIAB Coordinator, coordinated the sessions; the morning was opened by Fatih Birol, IEA Executive Director.

This Annual Meeting focused in particular on the innovation, policies and approaches that are needed to accelerate the deployment of sustainable bioenergy. Despite often being overlooked, the IEA indicates that modern bioenergy must be taken into serious consideration in future energy systems if global climate change commitments are to be met.
