    • Critical Materials For The Energy Transition: Rare Earth elements

      The technical paper on Critical Materials for the Energy Transition emphasises that an accelerated energy transition requires a growing supply of critical materials, with Chapter 7 of the IRENA’s World Energy Transition Outlook 2022 further elaborating on these materials. IRENA continues to publish technical papers on groups of critical materials: the first one focuses on lithium and this second paper focuses on rare earth elements.

    • Renewables Readiness Assessment: Kiribati

      Kiribati has identified a need for clear medium-term targets for fuel import reduction, and to complement these by scaling up renewables in its energy mix. Small scale off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have been in use since the 1970s, but experience in large-scale grid-connected solar PV applications is limited, necessitating capacity building for Kiribati’s move towards energy independence.
