LocalRenewables Conference Second International Seminar planned

June 13, 2007

The Second International Seminar of the LocalRenewables Model Community Network will take place in Betim (Brazil) from 27 to 29 June 2007.

After one year of activities in the region, this second international event will present projects and policies in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency that could be replicated by other municipalities.  The event will have the participation of national and international speakers who will present on sustainable alternative energies, their benefits and business opportunities for city administrations.

The Seminar will specifically cover the following topics:

  • Renewable energy and energy efficiency policies;
  • Renewable energy and energy efficiency actions;
  • Sustainable transportation as an integrated policy; and
  • Energy and sustainability in civil construction.

The Seminar will also include exhibits and demonstrations on various technological options.

The LocalRenewables Model Communities Network was initiated in 2005 by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability with the goal of supporting cities in their efforts to become models in the use and promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency, facilitate communication in a network between other communities and beyond and disseminate good practices and promote exchange of experiences.
