IRENA's Renewable Energy Market Analysis series aims to capture the wealth of knowledge and experience in a region and identify emerging renewable energy trends and themes at the intersection of public policy and market development. The studies encompass broader economic and energy sector trends as well as renewable energy investment and policy developments in each region and address issues of specific relevance as ‘in-focus’ discussions.
IRENA Regional Market Analysis reports published thus far:
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Africa
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Africa and its Regions; An energy system centred on renewable energy can help resolve many of Africa’s social, economic, health and environmental challenges. A profound energy transition is not only feasible, it is essential for a climate-safe future in which sustainable development prerogatives are met. Renewables are key to overcoming energy poverty, providing needed energy services without damaging human health or ecosystems, and enabling a transformation of economies in support of development and industrialisation.
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Southeast Europe
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Southeast Europe (2019) sheds light on energy, policy and financial conditions in the region, with a focus on the biomass sector and the specific benefits that diversified renewable energy deployment could bring to Southeast Europe.
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Southeast Asia
Annual economic growth in Southeast Asia exceeds 4 % and energy consumption has doubled in just over two decades. Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Southeast Asia (2018) examines the challenges of economic and population growth, the need to boost energy supply, and growing environmental and energy security concerns.
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: GCC 2019
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: GCC 2019 assesses the prospects for renewables to diversify both national economies and the combined GCC energy mix while also contributing to global sustainable development. IRENA updated the report amid rapid uptake of renewables across the region. Renewable Energy Market Analysis: The GCC Region (2016) first highlighted key opportunities and barriers in the sector.
Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Latin America
Latin America hosts some of the world’s most dynamic renewable energy markets and some countries generate almost all of their electricity from renewable sources. Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Latin America (2017) offers a comprehensive review of the status and trends in the region’s renewable energy development.
