Concrete solutions for a clean future
"At the Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Organization, we are working to end energy poverty via clean, renewable energy microgrids. Renewable sources, such as solar, have a large role to play in economic development and are a key to a clean, economically viable future. Micropower empowers. We applaud the Future is Clean campaign in helping raise awareness of this vital issue." #micropowerempowers - HE Jonathan Hill, Secretary General, IREO and Chairman, IREO Foundation The IREO Foundation is supporting the Future is Clean to promote awareness regarding the worldwide benefits and development potential to be found in renewable energy.
The Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Organization (IREO) was founded to support and advise governments in the urgent transition to sustainable and renewable resources that foster global economic development. The IREO Foundation supports IREO’s mission through initiatives that empower local populations in the use of long term renewable energies and technologies as a base for economic and sustainable development.

Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
