Colorado to Host World Renewable Energy Forum 2012: The World's Experts Come to Denver

Colorado's leadership role in renewable energy will be in the spotlight May 13-19, 2012, when the World Renewable Energy Forum (WREF) comes to Denver.

The WREF is the longest-running educational event for solar energy professionals in the United States. Now in its 41st year, the WREF program is begin developed by solar energy experts in areas such as technology, buildings, policy, professional education, workforce development, and consumer education.

The event is being presented by the American Solar Energy Society and the International Solar Energy Society, and the World Renewable Energy Network along with significant support from the Colorado Renewable Energy Society. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory will also play a large role at the conference.

Chuck Kutscher, conference program chair, said, "Our conference will not only look at how renewable energy technologies can address the environmental and energy crisis from an international perspective but also what it will take to integrate renewables into the world’s energy infrastructure on a very large scale.

"To accomplish this energy transition, we not only need to power our electric grids with renewable energy, but we also need to empower people to play active roles in our energy transition, especially in developing nations."
