Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA)
In accordance with China’s 10th Five-Year-Plan guidelines for national economic and social development, the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA) was established in 2000 with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the State Economic and Trade Commission (SETC).
CREIA serves as a bridge between regulatory authorities, research institutes, and industry professionals, in order to provide a forum to discuss renewable energy development at the national level and subsequently advise the Government of China on strategic policy formulation.
CREIA acts as a window to bring together national and international project developers and investors. It promotes technology transfer and raises awareness of renewable energy investment opportunities through an online Investment Opportunity Facility and regional networking and training activities.
CREIA also provides a network for its members from the Chinese renewable energy business community without access to communication within their sub-sectors, and provides a platform to voice their concerns collectively.
