Renewable Energy Latin America & Caribbean Conference and Exhibition

The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) hosts the Renewable Energy Latin American & Caribbean Conference & Exhibition (RELACCx), held for the first time in Fajardo, Puerto Rico from 11/19/14-11/21/14. This premier finance and development event introduces you to the top companies, industry leaders, international financial institutions and government officials operating, or focusing on the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) energy markets.

 

As renewable energy scales up around the world, today there are few places more exciting than Latin America or the Caribbean. A true growth market, the LAC region holds strong potential for all renewable technologies, from wind to solar, new hydro, biomass and more.

 

Very recently, The Guardian newspaper highlighted the region’s potential, noting that “Renewables are no longer more expensive and complex to deal with than fossil fuels.” To prove this point, one need look no further than investment figures from just last year, when the LAC region accounted for 7% of global clean energy investments totaling over $16 billion USD.

 

Recent regulatory and energy reforms in countries like Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru a have opened the door to competitive renewables. Spiking fossil energy prices in island economies like Aruba are incentivizing these countries to invest in more sustainable, clean energy options. And ahead of the UN climate change conference to be hosted in Peru this year, the global push for low-carbon energy is underscoring discussions across the region on what a sustainable energy future should look like.

 

With breakthroughs in technology, finance and public policy happening around the world, ACORE is recognizing the demand for focused conversation and new business opportunities in the Latin American and Caribbean regions. We are excited to be introducing RELACCx this year and invite you to take full advantage of sessions ranging from “The Intersection of Finance, Markets, and Policy” to “Emerging Business Models for Small-Scale Renewables.”

 

And new this year to ACORE events is a tremendous opportunity to invest in a different kind of future. The brand-new ACORE Renewable Energy Youth Ambassador Program asks young people from the region to offer their entrepreneurial solutions that use renewable energy to address critical problems in countries throughout the Caribbean, Central America, or South America. We look forward to honoring the top solutions and their authors, designated as RE Youth Ambassadors, at the Youth Ambassador Breakfast on the first day of RELACCx, and we invite you to join these future energy leaders as they look for tomorrow’s solutions to today’s most pressing issues.

 

We welcome all attendee’s and are pleased today share the extension of the 20% discounted hotel rate at the El Conquistador Resort until 11/05/14 by registering on-line http://relaccx.com/registration . Look to see you ar RELACCx in Fajardo! This event will be insightful and provide new opportunities for these growing markets.
