Washington D.C., March 18, 2009 -- The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) has launched a first of its kind website to help U.S. companies connect with Chinese companies and institutions that are working to expand and finance renewable energy development projects in China. The site is located at www.acorechina.org and provides English language news updates on activities in Solar, Wind, RE Policy and other initiatives underway across China, including information on regulations for doing business in China, downloadable market analyses and reports, and contact information on key industry and government decision makers.
The site was developed as part of a new US/China Development program being spearheaded by ACORE to educate itâEUR(TM)s more than 600 U.S. members about burgeoning business opportunities in China and to promote collaboration and exchange of information that will help advance the scale up of renewable energy initiatives in both countries.
âEURoeChina has made clear its commitment to advance renewable and clean energy solutions for meeting its vast and growing energy needs,âEUR said ACORE President Michael Eckhart. âEURoeThis has tremendous business implications for U.S. companies who are financing or building renewable energy products and services. Not only will our industry be called upon to meet President ObamaâEUR(TM)s call for doubling renewable energy production at home, but we also have an opportunity to strengthen our business ties globally through collaborating with other nations to help them meet their objectives for cleaner and more efficient energy production,âEUR said Eckhart.
Since ACOREâEUR(TM)s inception in 2001, the mission of the Washington D.C.-based non-profit group has been to promote the acceptance by mainstream America of all types of renewable energy by convening, connecting, and educating the U.S. companies that are developing and introducing RE technologies and products. âEURoeThat objective has largely been achieved,âEUR says Eckhart, âEURoeand today we are entering a new era in which we can help foster the scale up of the industry both here and abroad. The China program we are launching is one step in that direction.âEUR
The new ACORE/China website is currently public and its features visible to all viewers. The China site provides U.S. companies who are ACORE members and interested in doing business in China âEUR"or already have business operations in China -- a way to list their company specifics and contact information as well as provide a link to their own website. Chinese companies likewise will be encouraged to post information about their organization on the site. ACORE has opened its membership to international organizations for the past year and welcomes any member who can certify their companyâEUR(TM)s contribution to the advancement of renewable energy.
In addition to the new website, ACORE is in planning meetings with ChinaâEUR(TM)s renewable energy leaders in government and business to establish an annual joint U.S/China Great Wall Energy Conference and Exhibition that will convene leading U.S. and Chinese thought leaders, companies, educational institutions and government organizations around the goal of advancing U.S. and China relations in support of renewable energy development and implementation.
