Boulder, Colo., Nov. 14 – Researchers from Bangladesh, China, Korea and Iran have submitted abstracts for technical papers to be delivered at the World Renewable Energy Forum (WREF 2012), coming to Denver’s Colorado Convention Center, May 13 to 17.
Abstracts have come in from Wisconsin, Oregon, Utah and Colorado, as well.
Concepts covered by early submissions include –
• an improved design for parabolic trough mirrors used in electric generating plants,
• better foundations for offshore wind turbine towers,
• solar cells based on inorganic quantum dots,
• lighter, thinner solar water heating collectors,
• improved building-integrated solar heating elements,
• a better spectral analysis of pyranometer response, and
• forestry issues related to solar power development.
For the first time, the American Solar Energy Society’s National Solar Conference will combine with the bi-annual World Renewable Energy Congress. Energy experts from around the world will come to Denver, the epicenter of renewable energy in the United States, to share their research, knowledge and experience.
Renewable energy technologies are now crossing over the grid-parity divide into mainstream use throughout the world. WREF 2012 will examine how renewable energy technologies address the world’s economic, environmental and security challenges at every scale, from off-grid villages to gigawatt power plants.
Join Us May 13-17, 2012 in Denver, Colo.
WREF 2012 will be the premier international renewable energy conference of the year.
WREF 2012 is a unique opportunity to present your work in renewable energy/efficiency technology, policy, education or finance, to a wide-ranging audience, including manufacturers, policymakers, international renewable energy professionals, green builders, renewable energy providers, and many others.
Submit an abstract or forum proposal by Dec. 15, 2011.
WREF 2012 is presented by the American Solar Energy Society, the World Renewable Energy Network, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Colorado Renewable Energy Society, and the International Solar Energy Society.
The American Solar Energy Society is the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of renewable energy, energy efficiency and our nation’s transition to a sustainable energy economy. Founded in 1954 by solar scientists, educators, professionals and solar advocates, the Society hosts the National Solar Tour, organizes the National Solar Conference and publishes SOLAR TODAY magazine and its online editions SolarToday.org and Solar@Work. ASES founded the FindSolar.com database and website, produces original Climate Change and Green Jobs Reports, and supports grassroots advocacy initiatives. ASES advocates 50 percent of U.S. electric generation from renewable by 2050. Register for the World Renewable Energy Forum, coming to Denver in May.
