EREC conference on renewable energy sources for islands

November 20, 2002

Brussels, 19 Nov 2002

EREC, the European Renewable Energy Council, is organising a conference on renewable energy sources for islands, tourism and water desalination in Crete, Greece from 26 to 28 May 2003. This conference will focus on providing solutions for RES integration in islands, tourism and desalination.

Renewable energy sources are capable of solving many problems related to security of energy supply, environmental protection and economic development. They are especially suitable to cover the energy needs of islands and the tourism sector and can successfully be applied to technologies like desalination.

The conference is aimed at experts and decision makers, government representatives, representatives from international agencies and programmes; managers of islands' energy systems; energy agencies; universities, research and technical institutes; tourist associations and hotel managers; industrial associations and operators; technology providers and service suppliers; consultants and project developers.

Those interested submitting a paper should send a one page abstract to the EREC by 10 January 2003.
