RETECH is the American Council on Renewable Energy’s premier trade gathering of the all-renewable energy industry in the United States. The event offers an unparalleled opportunity to network with industry leaders and forward-thinking, focused organizations with a global view. This three-day technology conference and exhibition features a trade show with 250+ exhibitors and six tracks of top CEO-led business conference sessions by technology, as well as multiple business-to-business side events.

RETECH is a continuation of the Washington International Energy Conference (WIREC), which in 2008 was the largest business-to-business and business-to-government conference on all-renewable energy, with speakers and delegates from 126 different countries and over 8,600 attendees. The Mid-Atlantic – Russia Business Council (MARBC) hosted a panel discussion entitled “Recent Successes of Russian-American Renewable Energy Cooperation & Analytical Application Tools for Biofuels Market Developments” as one of 80 official side events approved by the U.S. Department of State.

MARBC is continuing its participation as a supporting organization of the RETECH/WIREC conferences and will work to expand the participation of the Russian delegation and to develop Russian business exposition in the events.

Additionally, the MARBC will be participating in Phase II of Renewable Energy in America 2011 taking place in December 6-7, 2011. Phase II, first started in 2004, has urged the United States to more seriously consider new renewable energy technologies. Since 2004 Phase II of Renewable Energy in America has continued every year, with 2010’s conference focusing on policies and trends that can help increase the development of renewable energy technologies in the United States and making policy recommendations to President Obama’s administration and to Congress.

The Phase II National Policy Forum will lay the groundwork for the 2012 US renewable energy market and finance policy agenda. It will explore the key issues on renewable energy supply, national security, economic development and jobs, and environment and climate. It will connect renewable energy with energy efficiency, storage, demand response, and smart grid. Join National and Global leaders as we assess the state of renewable energy policy today and the range of policy options available, and help to advise on a best case policy framework for 2012 and beyond.

The MARBC would like to invite you to take part in both RETECH 2011 and Phase II of Renewable Energy in America 2011.
