At the recent Bangkok UN Summit 2010, the United Nations launched the 14th European Conference in Renewable Energy, taking place in Edinburgh at Heriot-Watt University on the 21st January 2011.

The Conference on the Latest Technologies in Renewable Energy, Applications in Heating and Cooling - to lower CO2 emissions is organised by the European Energy Centre (EEC) in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the intergovernmental International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR).

You can view the launch of this exciting event by clicking on the above video.

At the UN Summit in Bangkok, Leaders and Ministers from the 180 countries who are signatories to the UNs Kyoto and Montreal Protocols, were presented with a copy of the Special International Issue UNEP-EEC of Industria & Formazione.

Organized by:

 

 

UNEP: United Nations Environment Programme, the branch of the UN which provides leadership and encourages partnerships in caring for the environment.

 

 

IIR: International Institute of Refrigeration is a scientific and technical intergovernmental organization enabling the pooling of scientific and industrial know-how in all refrigeration fields on a worldwide scale.

 

E.E.C.: European Energy Centre, founded and based in the United Kingdom. The E.E.C. is the answer to the lack of highly skilled and qualified technicians in the renewable energy sector both in Europe and in developing countries.

 

CSG: Centro Studi Galileo, established for 36 years has held thousands of training courses in energy and climatisation, organised houndreds of conferences including thirteen European Conferences on the latest energy saving technologies in climatisation; all of which identify the importance of "Getting ready for Renewable Energy - GND"

 

TERRE: Centre for Technology, Education, Research and Rehabilitation of the Environment, An important centre in the University city of Pune, near Mimbai, India, TERRE with the European Energy Centre launched the Green New Deal in India.

 

ATF: Associazione dei Tecnici italiani del Freddo - Italian Association of Refrigeration Technicians, together with CSG, ATF has the target of developing renewable energies and the GND.

 

GND: Green New Deal revolution, this is the development of new green technologies. Its aim is energy saving and environment sustainability. This is seen by many experts in the field as the solution to overcoming the global recession.
