Ukraine's full membership in the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) opens up broad prospects in the field of renewable energy.
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United Arab Emirates Yuri Polurez said this in an interview with Ukrinform.
"Our full membership in the Agency [IRENA] indeed opens up broad prospects in the field of renewable energy as it accumulates the best practices of the developed countries that have reached 60% and even 70% of the energy balance derived from the renewable energy sources," the diplomat stressed.
In his opinion, joining this club will give an opportunity for using the best world experience, the unique knowledge base regarding new technologies and trends of their implementation.
"It is very important for Ukraine as the share of renewable energy sources is growing every year. The participation in these initiatives will be very important for Ukrainian business, industry professionals, and, ultimately, for the Government," Ambassador Polurez said.
