IRENA The World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2014 concluded on Wednesday at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, United Arab Emirates.

This invitation-only session was organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, the Renewable Energy Industry Advisory Board (RIAB) of the International Energy Agency and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). A moderated discussion examined factors enabling successfully financed projects, as well as private sector views on key barriers for scaling up financing in renewables.

Throughout the day, IRENA hosted a workshop on "Business models for renewable energy deployment in cities." The event brought together key local government decision-makers and private sector actors to discuss cost effective business models. Discussions addressed, inter alia: waste to energy, solar water heaters, and retrofitting outdoor/road lighting.
