The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly implement activities related to the assessment of renewable energy potentials.

The Director-General of IRENA, Mr Adnan Amin and the Secretary General of WMO, Mr Michel Jarraud, signed this first Memorandum of Understanding between IRENA and a UN agency on 5 December during the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2011 (COP 17).

The partnership brings together the WMO’s scientific knowledge and network, technical capabilities and programmes, with IRENA’s knowledge and convening power in the renewable energy area. This first agreement will provide meteorological information and scientific expertise on climate services to better serve the needs of the energy community.
