The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) launched a new initiative, the Latin American Regional Sustainable Energy Policy Development Forum at the Grid Connected Renewable Energy Policy Forum in Mexico.

Mexico City, February 20, 2006


The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) launched a new initiative, the Latin American Regional Sustainable Energy Policy Development Forum at the Grid Connected Renewable Energy Policy Forum in Mexico.

Building on the work at the Grid Connected Forum, which was sponsored by the Mexican Government and the World Bank, the REEEP's Sustainable Energy Regulatory Network has decided to expand its work in Africa over to Latin America.

The newly launched Latin American Policy Forum is focused on ensuring that the appropriate regulatory structures exist for the acceleration of renewable energy across the region. The project will:

assemble a comprehensive survey of regional sustainable energy policies; identify gaps and reform measures; and work with key stakeholders to develop result oriented strategies for critical reforms.

The initial round of policy surveys will include Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
