The UNIDO-coordinated Regional Sustainable Energy Centres will become members of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling programme, a decision made by the IEA SHC Executive Committee at a meeting in Austria in early June. Seven Regional Centres for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency have already started operations, two of them - ECREEE and RCREEE (see table below) – were already members of IEA SHC.

Energy is not a luxury but a factor of production. It is a means to an end.  It can increase productivity, unlock people’s development potential and talents and lift people out from poverty. 

The Pacific Community (SPC) hosted Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency  (PCREEE) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) are assisting Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) in the development of a regional electric mobility (e-mobility) policy and program. Both documents will be presented for consideration at the Fourth Meeting of the Pacific Ministers of Energy and Transport, scheduled to take place end of September 2019 in Apia, Samoa.

The following video showcases some of the results and impacts of the ECOWAS Renewable Energy Facility (EREF) for peri-urban and rural areas. The EREF is an interesting example showcasing the benefits of regional cooperation within the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centers (GN-SEC).
