In a significant move, the United Nations General Assembly has declared January 26th as the International Day of Clean Energy. The same day as the founding anniversary of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in 2009. The International Day of Clean Energy serves as a yearly key point for both traditional and non-traditional actors to showcase their efforts in building more affordable, reliable, and sustainable modern energy systems.

As we commemorate this day, we mark it as a reminder of the collective responsibility we share in achieving universal clean energy access. The UN resolution emphasizes the urgent need to increase the share of renewables and clean energy by 2030 for a just and sustainable energy transition. It matches our vision at SKILLBILL, where we believe in empowering individuals to play an active role in making progress towards the 2030 agenda for sustainable development.

At SKILLBILL, we are excited about this global recognition, as it aligns with our commitment to promoting and advancing clean energy solutions. This declaration highlights the important role of IRENA in guiding the global transition towards renewable energy. It’s a milestone that connects with our mission at SKILLBILL, where we are dedicated to providing individuals with the knowledge and skills for a future of cleaner energy.

At SKILLBILL, we fully support this international commitment. Our focus on education, training, and equal access aligns perfectly with the goals of the International Day of Clean Energy. We see this as an opportunity to strengthen our efforts in closing the gap for universal access to electricity and supporting sustainable development. Moreover, as COP28* approaches Dubai, the international community is called upon to adopt a joint global approach to energy challenges. SKILLBILL stands ready to contribute to this global effort by supporting the transition to clean energy and ensuring that individuals are well-prepared to be part of this transformative journey.

In conclusion, the International Day of Clean Energy is not just a symbolic gesture; it’s a call to action. We invite everyone to join us in supporting this initiative and working towards a future where clean energy is not just a goal but a global reality!
