IRENA is an intergovernmental organization mandated with the promotion, increased adoption and the sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy. IRENA serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, center of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy.
As part of this mandate, IRENA seeks to stimulate the Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D) of Renewable Energy Technologies (RET). Hence, fostering cooperation and strengthening innovation instruments are key focus areas of the Agency’s Programme of Work for 2013. The Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region has been selected as a region of focus for this effort.
This thesis addresses IRENA’s efforts in reinforcing current cooperation mechanisms in LAC. The project seeks to identify initiatives, drivers and opportunities of cooperation in LAC, and supports IRENA’s role as a promoter of RD&D in RET. It analyses existing gaps in cooperation to provide strategies to overcome barriers to innovation.
