Renewable Energy Conference Attracting Attention

Major themes announced for WIREC meeting in March.

The Washington International Renewable Energy Conference is set for March 4-6 at the WashingtonConvention Center. The four major themes of the conference dealing with renewable energy in a global context have been announced and are: agricultural and rural development; technology and research; financing; and market adoption. USDA is one of the major sponsors of WIREC and Undersecretary Tom Dorr says participation from all renewable stakeholders is a key to success.

"The more people that are engaged, the more likely it is we're going to find out where the problems are and perhaps even identify more opportunities," Dorr says. "If you're interested at all, get registered and secure reservations as quickly as possible because we anticipate this being a very successful conference."
