Expanding the Use of Renewable Energy Around the World
ACORE's International Initiative works to accelerate the transition to a global renewable energy economy. In order to achieve this objective, ACORE partners with a number of countries, multilateral organizations, U.S. government agencies, and global corporations to foster an exchange of knowledge and best practices, identify business opportunities and promote the use of renewable energy around the world. ACORE's International Initiative provides a needed platform to discuss and improve policy and financial mechanisms for global renewable energy development.
ACORE's international work began with its US-China Program, which focused on increasing China's use of renewable energy. ACORE's international work has since expanded to include other countries and regions. ACORE's leadership in promoting renewable energy globally is shown through its work with USAID's Renewable Energy Leader with Associates (RELWA) effort and its Partnership to Advance Clean Energy-Deployment (PACE-D) effort in India. ACORE also assisted in forming multilateral renewable energy organizations both globally (IRENA) and regionally (LAC-CORE). ACORE is also an active participant in several international steering committees and has worked on organizing a number of renewable energy conference, including the Clean Energy Ministerial.
