REN21 joins labelling organisation

The Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) has joined labelling organisation WindMade as a working member, with plans to develop a new renewable energy consumer label.

WindMade is a global consumer label for companies that use wind energy and other renewables, which is backed by the UN Global Compact and conservation group WWF. The organisation intends to broaden its existing portfolio of labels to include a wider range of renewable energy technologies, and is currently seeking partners for this new initiative.

"We are delighted to have REN21 on board for developing a broader renewable energy label," said Henrik Kuffner, WindMade's CEO. "A strong global organisation such as REN21 representing renewable energy policy stakeholders will be key asset in our endeavours, and we look forward to a close and fruitful cooperation."

"REN21 and its members back WindMade's efforts to develop and establish a broader renewable energy consumer label for companies using green power sources, and we are looking forward to taking a more active role in supporting this development," said Christine Lins, executive secretary of REN21. "A close cooperation between our two organizations will be beneficial for both parties, strengthening our common efforts in promoting the deployment of renewable energy technologies globally." 

Key stakeholders of REN21 include international renewable energy associations, international organisations, environmental NGOs, as well as national governments (including Germany, UK, India, Brazil).
