The World Renewable Energy Congress is a key event at the start of the 21st century.

It is a vital forum for researchers with an interest in helping renewables to reach their full potential. The effects of global warming and pollution are becoming more apparent for all to see - and the development of renewable solutions to these problems is increasingly important globally.

If you were unable to attend the conference, the proceedings will provide an invaluable comprehensive summary of the latest topics and papers.


For engineers, architects, technicians, students and researchers working with energy systems.
