Event Overview Print E-mail

Following the successful launch that attracted over 350 attendees to Seattle in 2008, REFF-West will come to San Francisco on September 29-30, 2009. Part of the global REFF series that includes REFF-Wall St, the nation’s largest annual event for renewable energy finance, REFF-West will unite senior financiers, investors and clean energy executives from across the US.

The conference agenda will cover a range of renewable and clean energy technologies, with a particular focus on developments in the Western US. Topics covered at REFF-West include project financing, venture capital, renewable power generation, green buildings, energy efficiency, transmission and smart grid, government policy, and carbon finance. The conference will also offer an unparalleled networking opportunity, allowing you to meet senior representatives from both the energy and financial sectors who are focusing on renewables and clean technologies.

REFF-West builds on the success of REFF-Wall St, which takes place annually in New York in June and last year attracted over 700 participants. It is co-organized by the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) and Euromoney Energy Events.

The REFF-West conference agenda is currently under development and will be announced soon. If you are interested in taking part in REFF-West as a speaker, please contact Brandon Keefe or Chris Knowland. If you would like to receive information about the sponsorship options for this event please contact Tom Weirich or Chris White.
