Clean Energy Ministerial - Multilateral Solar and Wind Working Group

Clean Energy Ministerial, Power Partnership Steering Group

The Multilateral Solar and Wind Working Group strives to promote the accelerated deployment of solar and wind technologies worldwide.
The Working Group’s current focus is on two projects; the first project, carried out by the IEA’s Renewable Energy Division, analyses different approaches for system and market integration of variable renewable energies. It also entails a capacity building component in emerging economies. The second project, carried out by IRENA, analyses various design options of the auction scheme and focuses on presenting lessons learnt and best practices on how governments can design and implement auctions in the most cost efficient way while ensuring that projects awarded come online in a timely manner.
