On 14 February 2007, Betim (Brazil) opened the doors of its Reference Centre on Renewable Energies (CRER). CRER will provide information and serve as an educational centre on renewable energy for the community and other municipalities.

 

The inauguration was attended by over 100 people from the community and partners from across the state. Mayor Carlaile Pedrosa and partners unveiled the official plaque for the centre.

 

On the occasion, the Mayor also signed an official document declaring that the municipality will give preference to multi-flex vehicles when making new purchases for its fleet.
