Renewable Energy Conference to be Held in Cape Canaveral
A four-day conference on the use and development of renewable energy in the 
Caribbean will be held in Cape Canaveral June 3 - 6.  The program, "Renewables: 
The Road to Sustainability," is the seventh in a series sponsored by Sustainable 
Applications for Tropical Island States (SATIS) and the Caribbean Solar Energy 

SATIS 2007 is the only conference featuring renewable energy technologies 
conducted in the Caribbean, and researchers from universities across the Caribbean 
will be presenting their latest findings. This is the first time the conference 
has been held in the United States.

Bill Young of the University of Central Florida's Florida Solar Energy Center, who 
is serving as technical contact for the conference, said that "this program is 
designed to bring together scientists, technologists and industry from both inside 
and outside the Caribbean to talk about ways that tropical nations can use energy 
conservation, solar energy, wind, biomass and other cost-effective renewable 
technologies.  This year's program will feature a special exhibit on solar, wind, 
energy, water and the environment."

The program will be held at the Radisson Beach Resort at the Port in Cape Canaveral.  
For a copy of the conference program and complete details, visit  Abstracts are due by February 15.
