The tenth session of the Assembly will bring together Heads of State and Government, Ministers, Member delegations as well as heads of international and regional organisations, public and private entities and civil society representatives to contribute to the energy transformation dialogue.

One Ministerial Roundtable and two Ministerial Plenary sessions will take place, engaging Ministers and High-level participants on specific topics such as Decarbonisation – Green Hydrogen, Renewables Investment and Hydropower. A number of thematic meetings will be held over the course of the 10th session of the IRENA Assembly.

The main objectives include raising awareness of the importance of intensifying global efforts to deploy renewable energy, and to discuss their impact on the energy transformation and sustainable development, connecting policy makers, experts and innovators worldwide to learn from each other, and share best practice and experiences on issues of common interest.

The Assembly will also consider the conclusions of the Agency’s Council meetings and will provide guidance on specific administrative and institutional matters.

The Assembly will take place prior to Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week and the World Future Energy Summit, taking place from 13 to 16 January 2020, which will also feature a number of events hosted by IRENA.
