Introduction of the Chinese Renewable Energy Industry Association
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 obtained legal registration as the Renewable Energy Professional Division of the China Comprehensive Resource Utilization Association from the Ministry of Civil Affairs on March 25, 2002. CREIA has attracted distinguished membership of more than 200 from industry, academics, organizations and individual experts.
Functions of CREIA
During its operation, CREIA established the following priority functions in order to maximize its services to members:
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 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.
Mission of CREIA
CREIA promotes the adoption of advanced technologies among renewable energy enterprises in China and actively develops capacity for the rapid industrialization of the Chinese renewable energy sector.
