The International Renewable Energy Agency has welcomed the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change, adopted on Saturday in Paris by the 21st Conference of the Parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It described the agreement as a "watershed for the global energy transition."

But to meet the ambition set forth in the agreement, accelerating the deployment of renewable energy deployment across all sectors must start now, according to the Director-General of the IRENA, Adnan Amin.

"The Agreement establishes a long-term vision for the deep reduction of global emissions and the imperative of decarbonising energy."

The commitments submitted by countries in their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) demonstrate the centrality of renewable energy in national strategies, he said, adding that renewable energy has made remarkable progress in the last decade.

Combined with energy efficiency, renewable energy provides an immediate, viable and affordable solution to the challenge of climate change, he said.

"Yesterday the global community was united in voicing commitment for decisive, inclusive and coordinated action on climate change. The Paris Agreement provides a framework for international cooperation and sends a clear signal to all stakeholders to raise their ambition."

Amin noted that the innovative approach of the conference incorporated all of the ingredients for a positive outcome, setting the stage for decisive action moving forward.

He also praised the private sector and other actors for making "bold" announcements which strengthened the meeting’s solution-focused theme.

The director-general said the IRENA will welcome global energy leaders at the 6th Session of the IRENA Assembly in January 2016 to move the Paris Agreement to the next phase, setting the global renewable energy agenda and establishing a blueprint for action to meet climate goals and set the world on a path to a sustainable energy future.
