energias renováveis - por um mundo melhor

RIO 6, a follow-up to the successful RIO 5, RIO 3 and RIO 02 - World Climate & Energy Events, is being held to implement renewable energies as the energy supply of the future. The event brings together leading experts from science, industry and politics to report on latest research results, demonstrate new products and services, present successful policies and implementations, and show access to project financing via governmental policies, utility funds and international carbon trading via effective networks.

2. The Latin America Renewable Energy Fair (LAREF 2006)
The Latin America Renewable Energy Fair (LAREF 2006), attached to the RIO 6 congress hall, will emphasize the application aspects and give companies and institutions the opportunity to present their latest energy technology and services to a growing World- and Latin American market.

With the implementation of the Renewable Energy Incentive Program PROINFA, Brazil has become the most important market for renewable energies in Latin America. PROINFA guarantees the construction of at least 3,300 MW power plants driven by biomass, wind and small hydropower. Other programs such as PRODEEM, “Luz para todos” (Light for all) open a market for the use of solar energy and other renewable energy technologies. Conditions in Brazil are very favourable to tie new business contacts at LAREF 2006.
