3 -8 August:
World Renewable Energy Congress 2014
Kingston University, London, UK. With the accelerated approach of the global climate change point of no return the need to address the pivotal role of renewable energy in the formation of coping strategies, rather than prevention, is more crucial than ever. Sustainability, green buildings, and the development of the large scale renewable energy industry must be at the top of all development, economic, financial and political agendas. The time for action has arrived. Prevention and questioning how and why we face this great challenge is a luxury we can no longer indulge. WREN will team with any organization which develop and promote Renewable Energy for A BETTER, CLEANER, AND SAFER WORLD
