IREC is the International Renewable Energy Conference, co-hosted by a national government and REN21.
Under the name SPIREC 2023, the 2023 IREC is being held by Spain from the 20th to the 23rd of February in Madrid, specifically at the IFEMA MADRID FAIR CENTER within the framework of GENERA.
This is an international high-level policy event where decision-makers from across society come together to meet and discuss policies and experiences. It focuses on building collective know-how to advance renewables at the international, national and sub-national levels.
The ICLEI World Secretariat, ICLEI South America Secretariat, ICLEI Africa Secretariat and ICLEI Southeast Asia Secretariat will be present at SPIREC and speaking at several sessions during the event on 20 and 21 February. These sessions will be livestreamed.
ICLEI will also host a side event on 21 February titled “100% Renewable Cities and Regions: Argentina, Indonesia, and Kenya”, featuring representatives from the participating cities and regions from the project, and having them share their experiences of the energy transition in their communities.
