02. December 2021

 ISES, as a member of the IRENA Coalition for Action,  is proud to announce that the white paper Community Energy Toolkit: Best practice for broadening the ownership of renewables, is available online.

The IRENA Coalition for Action brings together leading renewable energy players from around the world with the common goal of advancing the uptake of renewable energy. The Coalition facilitates global dialogues between non-governmental and governmental stakeholders to develop actions to increase the share of renewables in the global energy mix and accelerate the global energy transition. Today, the Coalition brings together over 120 leading renewable energy players including private sector companies, industry associations, civil society, research institutes and intergovernmental organisations.

This white paper has been developed jointly by members of the Coalition’s Working Group on Community Energy. Using a case study approach, this white paper by the Coalition for Action highlights different ways communities actively participate in energy decision-making around the world and harness renewable energy’s potential to deliver economic, social and environmental benefits for a just transition.
