NEW WEB SITE, FOR A NEW ERA!!
The Alliance for Rural Electrification launches its new Website.
Brussels, Friday June 15, 2007.
In order to bring the Alliance of Rural Electrification closer to its members, to its partners and to any person, company or institution interested in rural electrification, ARE has just launched its new web page; a practical tool for educational purposes and a useful instrument to obtain updated information about the association, its activities and the "state of the art" of renewable energy technologies (RETs) for rural electrification, as well as the latest news on the energy off grid market situation. The website is composed of a wide range of sections, including interesting links, presentations and publications on rural electrification and a selection of pictures to illustrate the implementation of RETs in secluded areas. Moreover, clear indicators are provided to show that renewable energy is central to sustainable development and poverty reduction.
The Alliance for Rural Electrification is an international non-profit organization founded by the most important European renewable energy Industry Associations: EPIA (Photovoltaic), ESHA (Small Hydropower), EWEA & GWEC (Wind) and EUBIA (Biomass). The organization was created to respond to the outstanding need of providing a sustainable access to electricity to the developing world and to facilitate the involvement of its members within a rural electrification global dialogue and in the emerging off grid markets. The greatest strength of the ARE is its robust industry-based approach, coupled with the ability to combine different renewable energy sources in order to provide more efficient and reliable solutions for rural electrification. The global approach of the Alliance, including each and every relevant actor active in the field of rural electrification, will open a window of new opportunities, it will create new synergies and will contribute to the development of the markets for off grid energy, redounding in the benefit of the supply chain, the end consumers and, ultimately, of the whole international community.
Regularly updated and maintained by the ARE secretariat, the website is the result of a joint effort of its members, designers (Melting Elements) and active supporters. The current work of ARE is focused on gaining new members, developing strategical partnerships and participating within relevant events and projects related to rural electrification. Visit the website and contribute to "shine a light for progress"!
