EnerCon – The 1st International Energy Conference

July 23 & 24, 2015 - Muntinlupa City, Philippines

EnerCon will provide a timely venue for a wide range of stakeholders in the energy sector to share information and insights pertinent to RE adoption and development in the Philippines and around the world.

Expect plenary presentations from renowned experts and/or practitioners in the field of Energy as well as a mini-exhibit of selected energy-related industries and organizations. Keeping to the theme of this year’s conference, “REvolutionizing Economic Development through Business and Technological Innovations in Renewable Energy”, other relevant local and foreign stakeholders will also be presenting oral and poster presentations in parallel sessions on the various thematic areas related to RE use and promotion.

Establish new contacts at the conference as well as those reached by the related media exposure to explore opportunities for continuing education, collaboration, and business expansion.

The Conference is multi-disciplinary, covering the fields of Economics, Business, Technology, and Policy. There will be six sessions: REcover, REform, REgenerate, REstart, REstore, and REact.
