[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] A partnership being led by The United States Department of Commerce is arranging for a trade mission meant to offer an opportunity for U.S. firms to break into Brazil’s rapidly expanding renewable energy market. The Department of Commerce in collaboration with the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), is planning this trade mission to Brazil, between October 17-19th, 2005. Given the country’s abundance of natural resources and the Brazilian government’s incentive programs, enormous growth potential is projected over the next four years. The trade mission will have scheduled stops in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and Salvador da Bahia. At each stop, trade mission participants will benefit from country briefings and one-on-one business meetings with prospective agents, distributors, partners, and end-users. Best prospects include U.S. firms working the in small hydro, wind, solar, biomass, or biodiesel industries.
