MINSK, 11 September (BelTA) – The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is ready to compile the Renewables Readiness Assessment of Belarus report, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian State Committee for Standardization.
According to IRENA Director General Francesco La Camera, the report will be part of IRENA work program for 2020-2021. It will analyze Belarus' capabilities to scale up the use of renewable energy, taking into account the analysis of conditions and prospects of using other energy resources (oil, gas, nuclear energy, and other).
“The assessment of technological, political, economic, and social conditions will help us work out the most important activities needed to support development of renewable energy technologies in Belarus. The report will focus on involving all stakeholders in this work in order to come up with detailed recommendations aimed at improving the current use of energy resources,” the committee noted.
The press service added that the results of the report may lay down the basis for further cooperation with international organizations in helping Belarus achieve Sustainable Development Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. This also provides for receiving loans and grants from these organizations to implement investment and international technical assistance projects.
