Renewable Energy Organization Launches

Compiled By Jill Jusko The American Council for Renewable Energy (ACRE), an organization whose mission is to bring renewable energy to mainstream America, recently completed its organizing conference in Washington D.C. ACRE Chairman Michael Eckhart, president of Solar International Management Inc., Washington, D.C., says that more than 50 organizations have submitted applications for membership in the six weeks of the initial membership drive, which continues through 2002. "Over the next five years, ACRE will seek to bring together the 500 to 1,000 organizations that are in, or related to, the renewable energy community," Eckhart says. "As a nonprofit group ACRE will be working to promulgate better information about renewables, and raise the funds necessary for a sustained national communications program."
