Our future depends heavily on humanity's ability to provide sustainable energy for all. 1.2 billion people have no access to electricity and 2.7 billion people lack access to clean and healthy cooking facilities. Renewable energy plays a pivotal role for sustainable development, and is as crucial to the alleviation of poverty and securing human well-being as it is to economic growth and development. The Renewable Energy and Quality of Life conference at the World EXPO Future Energy Forum is an incubator for this cause. The entrepreneurial spirit and innovative focus of the conference join the participants and audience to foster renewable energy learnings and implement real time RE solutions to provide sustainable energy for all.

The vast majority of people without energy access live in rural communities and consequently have to deal with the terrible effects of deforestation, dirty drinking water, poor education and little health provision. This event will aim to showcase innovative solutions in renewable energy and mobilize the conference participants in solving current energy problems to enhance quality of life on a global scale. Presenting new technologies, products and designs, eco-efficient production and new value added processes, the speakers aim to create awareness of the real life Renewable Energy solutions being implemented today. The ultimate purpose of the conference is to bring together energy experts/sustainability innovators to network, innovate, collaborate and provide solutions on how to secure human well-being by providing access to renewable energy for all.
Through a variety of events including impulse speeches, panel discussions, workshops, and elevator pitches of innovative CleanTech enterprises, we will innovate, collaborate and provide solutions on how to secure human well-being by providing access to renewable energy for all. Keynote speeches from Renewable Energy experts will provide the audience with current methods and global perspective on how lives can be changed through implementation of Renewable Energy. Panel Discussions will gather CEOs of RE companies who have implemented their advanced technology in the field to discuss topics such as Social Inclusion of RE Initiatives and quality of life, and large impacts to quality of life with only a few KWs. A Best Practices forum will showcase RE solutions in real time. Networking events will offer the conference to share learnings.
