RETD (2005-2017)

The IEA Renewable Energy Technology Deployment (RETD) Technology Collaboration Programme, formerly known as Implementing Agreement, was officially launched in September 2005 and ended on July 2017. The RETD’s mandate was to address cross-cutting issues that influence the deployment of renewable energy and to act as a vehicle to accelerate the market introduction and deployment of renewable energy technologies.
While the other IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes on renewable energy focus on specific technologies, the RETD was cross-cutting from a technological point of view and complemented the activities of the other TCPs.
