RE & EE Events Listing: Singapore, Thailand, USA

This week I’ve got news of events in Bangkok, Singapore and Washington DC.

Energy Efficient Buildings: Mission Possible

Many architects, engineers and constructors in Thailand seem to have understood that image is no longer the main reason to go green. They are asking: ‘Are factories and companies doing enough to perform as green buildings?’ Energy efficiency is highly business-oriented. They will be further encouraged when the local green building code, TREES, is introduced by the Thai Green Building Institute later this year.

The architecture of sustainability, green design and sustainable buildings will be discussed on 12-13 July in Bangkok at the Energy Efficiency Summit, officiated by Mr. Krairit Nilkuha, Director–General, DEDE, Ministry of Energy in Thailand.

Investing clean

Sticking with Asia, but if you’re in Singapore not Thailand that week, you could attend Clean Technology Investment World Asia 2011, 11-14 July, Singapore. There’s a good reason to go – over the last 2 years, more than 70% of capital raised on clean technology public offerings was done in Asia.

Loadsamoney!
