On 15 November 2015, Sebastian Stepnicki, Counsellor at the Embassy of Poland in the United Arab Emirates, presented credentials to Adnan Amin, Director-General of IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) thus becoming Poland's Permanent Representative to this organization. IRENA Director-General Amin commended Poland for its role among the European countries that are already actively using various renewable natural resources in the energy supply for power generation as well as heating/cooling and biofuels.
Sebastian Stepnicki thanked for the continuous support and engagement of IRENA into the matters concerning renewables worldwide and particularly for the recently released report by the IRENA: REmap 2030 Renewable Energy Prospects for Poland. The report is part of IRENA's renewable energy roadmap, REmap 2030, which provides a plan to double the share of renewable energy in the world's energy mix by 2030 and determines the potential for Poland and other countries to scale up renewable energy in the energy system, including power, industry, buildings, and the transport sector. The document was prepared with input from the Polish Ministry of Economy
