WCREWCRE Press Release, September 16th, 2005

“World Renewable Energy Assembly”, November 26th to 30th, 2005

More than one year after the International Conference for Renewable Energies, “Renewables 2004”, the World Council for Renewable Energy strikes a disillusioning balance: The WCRE misses an effective realisation of Renewable Energies after the implementation of a large number of action programmes and declarations in favour of Renewable Energies.

The WCRE indicates in its recently publicised Call for Participation, that the worldwide consumption of fossil energy sources is still increasing faster than the proliferation of Renewable Energies. Only 5% of the global investments in the energy sector are spent on Renewable Energies.

Under the title “World Renewable Energy Acceleration: No more time to waste”, the international network invites representatives in the field of environment, development, science, industry and agriculture and from social movements to an international conference.

The World Renewable Energy Assembly (WREA) will take place in Bonn from November 26th to 30th, 2005. It is a follow-up event of the International Parliamentary Forum on Renewable Energies and the World Renewable Energy Forum 2004.

Representatives committed to the complete substitution of conventional by renewable energies gather at WREA which is chaired by Dr. Hermann Scheer, General chairman of the WCRE, president of EUROSOLAR and winner of the Alternative Nobel Prize.

Conflicts of interest and between targets in the energy debate are going to be discussed “free of diplomatic and compromising regards”, announces the WCRE.

The Call for Participation ”World Renewable Energy Acceleration: No more time to waste” and the press accreditation are available at and
