BANGKOK, Thailand, September 18 /PRNewswire/ --


With countries in Asia experiencing rapid economic growth, a dramatic increase in demand for new energy resources is under way. Although fossil fuels still contribute the largest share of total energy at 79%, renewable energy sources are growing by leaps and bounds and now account for around 20%. And, as oil prices have soared to over US$100 a barrel, that trend shows no sign of changing any time soon.

These developments underline the significance of the World Renewable Energy Congress, which is held in specially selected countries each year. For 2008 the conference was successfully held in Glasgow, Scotland. But next year it will be Asia's turn - and the site selected is Bangkok. The Congress has also chosen to hold its meeting at Entech Pollutec /Renewable Energy Asia - adding further to the prestige of that event.

As before, Renewable Energy Asia 2009 will run in conjunction with Entech Pollutec Asia, being held at the BITEC Exhibition Centre in Bangkok from 20-23 May. It is being organised by CMP Media (Thailand). Without a doubt, this will be one of the most important environmental events of the year and comes with the full backing of the World Renewable Energy Network (WREN) and the Thai Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB).

Views, ideas and programs on Renewable Energy will be discussed by key international representatives such as policy makers, researchers, manufacturers, environmentalists and financiers. A full program of informal plenary and technical sessions, which should prove both fascinating and productive, is currently being arranged. Topics will include: Bio and Solar Energy, Wind and Small Hydro Power systems, Fuel and Hydrogen Cells, Energy Policies and Economics, Air Pollution, Energy-related Environmental Technology and Energy Management, Global Warming and Climate Change.
