International Conference
REvision2019: Renewable Revolution

6 March 2019

in Japanese

Renewable Energy Institute will hold its annual international conference "REvision2019: Renewable Revolution" on 6 March 2019.

Renewables have become the most competitive source of energy in many parts of the world. The use of abundant and widely existing renewables is bringing energy security and affordable energies in various regions, and has been transforming the global geopolitics in the sense of economy and politics, not only from the way of energy business.

REvision2019 will reveal the continuous global growth of renewables, present how the vast deployment of low-cost renewable is driving changes in business and regions, as well as highlight long-term visions towards 2050.
