Wirec 2008 in Washington

Wirec 2008 - wirec_about.xml: "Vision of WIREC 2008. The Washington International Renewable Energy Conference (WIREC 2008) will bring together government, civil society and private business leaders to address the benefits and costs of a major and rapid scale-up in the global deployment of renewable energy technology," informs the conference web page.

The conference was arranged in March 2008. Minister Mauri Pekkarinen from Finland participated.

WIREC Participants can expect to:

  • Acquire a better understanding of the benefits of large-scale renewable energy deployment on energy security, climate change, air quality and economic growth.

  • Gain an appreciation of the multiple policy options and best practices that encourage and enable accelerated renewable energy up-take.

  • Develop networks and find partners to explore and initiate renewable energy projects.

These three objectives will be woven into WIREC's four cross-cutting and policy driven themes: Agriculture and Rural Development; Technology/Research and Development; and Market Adoption and Finance."
