This event followed successful meetings in Florence (2006), Denver (2004), and Cologne (2002). WREC attracted a truly international audience, with over 100 countries participating at WREC 2006. Held every two years, this was a major event in the calendar for all those involved in the supply, distribution, consumption, and development of energy sources which are benign, sustainable, accessible, and economically viable, providing a unique opportunity to learn of the latest developments in this rapidly changing and expanding field.
The World Renewable Energy Congress and Exhibition themes focused on all aspects and fields of renewable energy, firstly helping to ensure that they become a major contributor to a sustainable and secure energy supply for the greater benefit of all; as well as facilitating the knowledge exchange and business engagement of participants from both developed and developing countries; and finally, assisting with developing finance and institutional support for renewable energy projects locally and internationally.
The 10th World Renewable Energy Conference was held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow, UK on 20 - 25 July 2008. BRE Scotland and the University of Strathclyde were proud to have jointly hosted this meeting on behalf of the World Renewable Energy Network, (WREN).
