The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), the world’s largest utility, agreed recently to enhance their co-operation with a view to advancing the energy transition under global and regional initiatives, including the Paris Agreement and the Belt and Road initiative. The framework of the agreement includes opportunities for collaboration on activities related to integrating high shares of wind and solar, grid integration, interconnection and smart grids. The framework also includes initiating technical co-operation in the context of IRENA’s Clean Energy Corridor initiatives and capacity building activities related to integrating renewable power in energy systems in developing countries. The agreement was formalised on the sidelines of the Eighth Clean Energy Ministerial in Beijing, China between IRENA Director-General Adnan Amin and SGCC Chairman Shu Yinbiao.
