This week saw Ben Backwell, CEO of GWEC attend the latest IRENA Coalition for Action strategy meeting.

The meeting explored the future priorities and work programme for the group going into 2019. A key part of the meeting was to discuss the future of renewables and how the group can ensure private sector investment in renewables in emerging markets.
