The world’s energy systems are changing. Renewable energy has moved from a niche technology to its broad-scale adoption in many countries.

The International Network of Energy Transition Think Tanks (INETTT) brings together think tanks supporting energy transitions from around the world. It aims to integrate the perspectives of its members to offer a more diverse view of energy transitions, their drivers and impacts both globally and comparatively between member countries. It offers opportunities to exchange, share, and collaborate on research topics, policy, and strategy, thereby strengthening joint and individual impact, through exchange of lessons learned, leveraging synergies, as well as institutional and thematic skill-sharing supported through grants.
