World Renewable Energy Congress provides international forum

Delegates to gather in Denver to share knowledge, ideas, on energy issues

Denver, Colo., Nov. 14, 2003 - Energy ministers, deputy ministers or other representatives from as many as 100 countries are expected to participate in the world's largest gathering of renewable energy experts in Denver, Aug. 28-Sept. 3, 2004. The eighth World Renewable Energy Congress (WREC VIII) will provide a forum for energy suppliers and consumers, as well as governments, industry, academia and financial institutions to discuss the development of energy sources that are secure, sustainable, accessible and economically viable.

Among the topics delegates can expect to discuss are solar energy, wind energy, biomass conversion, geothermal energy, hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, gender and energy, and distributed energy and electricity reliability.

WREC VIII allows policy makers, researchers, manufacturers, financiers, government officials and others to present their views in plenary and technical sessions and to participate in discussions, both formal and informal, enabling a transfer of knowledge among nations.

WREC VIII will be hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Other major sponsors include the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the World Renewable Energy Network, the American Council on Renewable Energy, and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

More information on WREC VIII and the companion Energy Technology Expo and Conference, including key contacts, a call for abstracts, and logistics and registration details, is available at www.nrel.gov/wrec .

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
