Chair of the British Wind Energy Association and UK CEO of Airtricity Adam Bruce will address the international business community in Philadelphia at the Holiday Luncheon of the British American Business Council (BABC) on Friday, December 7, 12 noon at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. Mr. Bruce will discuss the future of renewable energy, “Following Carnegie: Joining Scotland and the USA in the Age of Renewables.”

During his visit to Philadelphia, Mr. Bruce will discuss how the political, macro-economic and business case for renewable energy has continued to grow and develop over the past years. Concerns surrounding security of energy supply have increased and the debate with respect to the reality of climate change and increasing average global temperatures has been effectively concluded. The result is an ever-increasing awareness and acceptance of the need for clean, sustainable and dependable sources of energy – in short, for Renewable Energy.

“Bearing in mind the intense competition that exists in acquiring turbines at a time of world shortage,” said Airtricity UK Chief Adam Bruce, “we are delighted to have secured capacity to deliver a further 500 MW of renewable energy for our 2008 build program in the USA.

The British American Business Council (BABC) – an affiliate of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce – in partnership with Scottish Development International, British Airways, and Exelon Power Team, will bring together members of the international business community to this unique transatlantic business luncheon.

The cost is $85 for BABC Members and $ 100 for non-members. To register, please contact Ricardo Maldonado at 215-790-3627 or Ricardo@greaterphilachamber.com Your payment includes a chance to win two round trip tickets, Philadelphia to London courtesy of British Airways.
