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.

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; Finance; and Market Adoption/Deployment.
