The International Renewable Energy Conferences, a global platform for the advancement of renewable energy, takes place in Cape Town, South Africa in October 2015.

Convened by the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21), IREC is a high-level political conference series hosted by a national government. Previous hosts include: Bonn, Germany (2004), Beijing, China (2005), Washington, USA (2008), Dehli, India (2010), Abu Dhabi, UAE (2013).

Be part of this important global platform

Comprising a conference, an exhibition and a series of side events, SAIREC 2015 will bring together renewable energy leaders in government, the private sector and civil society from around the world.

The focus is on removing barriers to the rollout of renewable energy globally, promoting development and innovation in this sector and highlighting the role that renewable energy can play in terms of accelerating development in general.

Take advantage of the African opportunity

Hosted by the South African Department of Energy together with the South African Energy Development Institute, under the theme RE-Energising Africa, this is the first IREC conference to be hosted on African soil.
