The IGA closely collaborates with the ‘IRENA Renewable Energy Learning Partnership’- IRELP (www.irelp.org) . IRELP is a central hub that pools renewable energy education and training materials that often tend to be widely dispersed, and displays renewable energy scholarship and internship opportunities alongside news and events. More specifically, IRELP is comprised of a global education and training database that includes both past and upcoming webinars, a library of renewable energy training materials and an e-learning platform where users receive support through online lectures and tutorials. IRELP also provides information on vocational training courses and tertiary degree programmes worldwide.
