Summit and Expo
The 2009 Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and Expo will be held on August 31-September 3, 2009, in Honolulu, Hawaii, at the Sheraton Waikiki resort on world-famous Waikiki Beach. Organizer of this conference is the state of Hawaii, in cooperation with the Defense Energy Support Center and U.S. Pacific Command.
The 2009 Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and Expo will center around various renewable energy initiatives and policies throughout the Asia-Pacific region. It will also include a trade show for innovative technologies, services and ideas. The Department of Defense will also have a DOD day featuring plans and procurement opportunities for energy projects throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
Hawaii is an ideal location for an Asia Pacific Energy Summit and Expo. The Wall Street Journal noted that Hawaii, "a state better known for sun and fun, is quietly morphing into one of the world's leading incubators of alternative energy." As a gateway for commerce in the Asia-Pacific region and a strategic center for the U.S. military, it is a natural gathering place for attendees to share views, efforts and commitments to enhance energy security and mitigate climate change through clean energy. Presenters and participants will share renewable energy advances and common goals for increasing sustainable energy development and security, address concerns, exchange information, share experiences and exchange best practices.
The time is now for the nations of the Asia-Pacific region to work together to access clean and energy efficient technologies. We hope to see you in Hawaii for what promises to be an exciting conference and trade show.
The 7th Korea-Pacific U.S. States Joint Conference will also be held in conjunction with the Asia-Pacific Clean Energy Summit & Expo. This portion of the Asia-Pacific Clean Energy Summit and Expo is sponsored by the Korea International Trade Association (KITA); the Korea-U.S. Economic Council; and the states of Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
