“With Adnan Amin as Director General, IRENA will get off to a running start,” says Steve Sawyer, Secretary General at the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

“He has the experience and the knowledge necessary for IRENA to play a key role in transforming the global energy supply into a system based on clean, renewable energy, thereby building new industries, and consigning the polluting and dangerous technologies of the 19th and 20th centuries to the dustbins in which they belong.”

Adnan Amin adds: “In 5 years time, IRENA should be the hallmark in terms of renewable energy information, technology cooperation and facilitation, setting the standards that will facilitate the uptake of renewable energy globally.”
