SA on Sunday joined an international agency which promotes renewable energy, even though so far domestic progress in renewable energy has lagged.

Energy Affairs Minister Dipuo Peters signed the register of the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) statutes in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

“This is a pioneer development that will enable us to work with other countries to accelerate the introduction of renewable energy and to confront our vexing energy challenges,” said Min. Peters.

Irena was formed last year to provide practical advice and support for both industrialised and developing countries, help them improve their regulatory frameworks and build capacity.

Richard Worthington, Climate Change Co-ordinator for the World Wildlife Fund in SA, welcomed the announcement but said there was still much to be done.

“Government really needs to get its act together,” he said.
