Our Story

Leading industry players have united to form a unified renewable energy voice: The Global Renewables Alliance. 

The Global Renewables Alliance (GRA) was established by the Global Wind Energy Council, Global Solar Council, International Hydropower Association, Green Hydrogen Organisation, Long-Duration Energy Storage Council and the International Geothermal Association to unify the global bodies representing the clean technologies required for a net zero world by 2050. Collectively we strengthen the private sector’s voice on accelerating the energy transition, and call for a tripling of renewable energy capacity by 2030 to at least 11,000 GW.

Meet the associations working to deliver the energy transition

The Global Wind Energy Council is helping the world reach Net Zero by working with governments, associations and communities to deploy vast amounts of clean, reliable wind energy.

Bringing industry, governments and institutions together to deliver wind energy as a key climate solution.

Global Solar Council is the voice of the world’s solar energy industry on the global stage, a non-profit body based in Washington D.C. and representing national, regional and international associations as well as leading solar sector corporations.

The International Hydropower Association (IHA) is a non-profit membership organisation committed to sustainable hydropower. Our mission is to advance sustainable hydropower by building and sharing knowledge on its role in renewable energy systems, responsible freshwater management and climate change solutions. We achieve this through monitoring the hydropower sector, building an open, innovative and trusted platform for knowledge, and advancing strategies that strengthen performance.

The Long Duration Energy Storage Council is a global nonprofit advancing decarbonization by facilitating the accelerated deployment of long-duration energy storage. The executive-led organization convenes members, publishes research, and serves as an advocate to advance the goals and objectives of the energy companies, equipment manufacturers, financial institutions, and technology innovators the LDES Council represents. 

GH2 promotes the sustainable production and use of green hydrogen – mitigating climate change and delivering reliable clean energy.

The International Geothermal Association works for the promotion and worldwide deployment of geothermal energy technology and advocates a future energy system based on renewable energy. The IGA has consultative status to the UN and special observer status to the Green Climate Fund.
