The Renewable Energy Congress 2020 (RE Congress 2020) is the first virtual event that envisions to, once again, bring together renewable energy advocates, developers, producers, researchers, experts, students, and end-users or “prosumers” with the goal of exchanging knowledge and practices, and strengthening collaboration – to attain viable viable energy solutions, particularly renewable energy, in addressing the impacts of pandemic, climate change, and economic crises. Speakers from the government, energy industry, academe, and people's organizations will tackle policies, practices and challenges to make energy sufficient, affordable, sustainable, resilient/adaptive, inclusive, and generally responsive to the call of the times.
