Renewable Energy Markets 2011 Conference – November 15–18, 2011 San Francisco, CA

For nearly two decades, Renewable Energy Markets (REM) has defined and expanded marketplace opportunities for clean power. Bridging the interests of renewable energy generators, sellers, and utilities with those of purchasers, policymakers, and the communities that benefit from clean energy, REM is the nation’s premier forum for the energy community to gather, learn from each other, and recognize best practices for promoting renewable energy. It is organized by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions and co-sponsored by the Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
