Why You Need to Attend WREF 2012

LEADING THE RENE WABLE ENERG Y REVOLU TION

SOLAR TODA Y®
By Susan Greene
Renewable power has come of age. Today’s industry has achieved the viable level of pricing, and the economies of scale, that we’ve been working toward for half a century.
Now the business must cope with new problems and opportunities of global scale. Worldwide production overcapacity in both solar
and wind power challenges any manufacturer, but for everyone else
it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for rapid growth.
That’s why it’s so important to attend the World Renewable
Energy Forum in Denver, May 13–17. That’s where you can cast
a global net for the most cutting-edge and innovative work in the
renewable energy field.
WREF 2012 is organized by the American Solar Energy Society, the World Renewable Energy Network, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the International Solar Energy Society and
the Colorado Renewable Energy Society. Speakers include
industry leaders from major companies, including Danielle Merfeld,
If you design, build, sell, buy, promote, permit, finance, study,
own or operate energy systems, come to WREF.
If you want to see the future of energy, transport and the environment, come to WREF.
If you need solutions, or have ideas to offer, several thousand
people at WREF want to meet you.
