ACORE Kicks Off 2004 Membership Drive

The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) announced the beginning of its 2004 membership drive with a goal to increase its membership from 100 to 200 organizational members, and with a focus on electric utilities, industrial companies, renewable energy technology suppliers, finance-related firms, educational institutions, and state and local agencies.

Washington D.C. – October 31, 2003 [] The membership drive fits with ACORE’s next major event, Power-Gen Renewable Energy (PGRE), the all-renewable energy trade show to be held on March 1-3, 2004 in Las Vegas. “ACORE has established a strong base of founding members and leadership, and now it is time to grow the organization and implement the exciting programs that the Board, Steering Committee, and members have defined,” said ACORE’s Chairman Rob Pratt. “ACORE has a natural fit with the renewable energy technology suppliers, utilities, industrials, and financiers because of our philosophy of being for renewables without being against anything else. This is a tremendous base for learning, networking, convening and communicating to the nation.” ACORE also announced its 2004 suite of programs. The group will publish a new book entitled “Renewable Energy in America 2004” under the guidance of Christopher Flavin, President of the Worldwatch Institute, as chairman of the editorial board. ACORE is working to create a new National Energy Security Coalition under the guidance of its Advisory Board, with town meetings across the country calling for renewable energy solutions to reducing oil imports. It plans to create a national Media Center to support better media coverage of renewables. It plans to create working groups of utilities that are developing renewable energy and experimenting with green power programs. “ACORE’s mission is to bring renewable energy into the mainstream of our country” said Michael Eckhart, ACORE’s president. “The new programs begin a long-term campaign by ACORE to help increase and accelerate the adoption of renewable electricity, hydrogen, fuels and end-use energy in the United States.”
