Renewable energy is growing fast providing jobs for 6 milion people globally and triggering annual investment of 250 bilion dollars world-wide. Renewables can drasti-cally reduce dependence on energy imports and provide rapidly increasing contributions to urgently needed electricity demand globally.Renewables are the cornerstones and the foundation of a truly sustainable energy future. Our mission is to pro-mote enabling policies and to further develop a broad range of renewable energy technologies and applications in all sectors for heating and cooling, agricultural applications, water desalination, industrial applications and for the transport sectors leading to a better, cleaner and safer world.

Welcome to the World Renewable Energy Network
University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest (UPB)
WREN is a major non-prot organization registeres in the United Kingdom with charitable status and actively cooper-ating with: All UN Agencies, The EU, ISESCO, EWEA, EPIA, ISES, AFORE,UK-REA and MASDAR.Established in 1992 during the second World Renewable Energy Congress in Reading, UK, WREN is one of the most eective organizations in supporting and enhancing the utilisation and implementation of renewable energy sources that are both environmentally safe and economically sustainable. This is done through a worldwide network of agencies, laboratories, institututions, companies and individuals, all working together towards the international diusion of renewable energy technologies and applications. Representing most countries in the world, it aims to promote the communication and technical education of scientists, engineers, technicians and managers in this eld and to address itself to the energy needs of both developing and developed countries.
Romania is one of the large countries of Europe (the size of the United Kingdom or roughly half of France), with a population of approx. 22 million inhabitants. Along with the Romanians, Hungarians, Germans, Serbs, Turks and other minorities also live in the country. Most of them are of Greek-Or-thodox religion, but there are also many Catholics, Protestants, Evangelical, Muslims and others.Oen compared to a Latin island in a Slav sea, Roma-nia features a unique familiar feeling in Eastern Europe: its language of a Latin origin, the Latin alphabet (quite rare in this part of Europe) and moreover the Latin temperament and friendliness of its people - all make of Romania a place where most visitor feel very comfortable.
is the largest and the oldest technical university in the country and among the most prestigious universities in Romania. e tradition of our institution, developed in over 195 years through the eort of the most important nations schoolmasters and of the generations of students, is not the only convincing reason. Today, the UPB is undergoing a continuous modernization process, being involved in a permanent dialogue with great universities in Europe and all over the world.
e mission of UPB has been thought over as a blend of education, research and innovation, which represents a key towards a knowl-edge-based society and economy. Creating knowledge mainly by scientic research, giving it out by education and professional training, disseminating it by information technologies, as well as the use of technological innovation are elements that dene the university distinctive prole. In order to face these complex challeng-es, the UPB is planning a sound educational and research-development policy with the participa-tion of the entire community.
Bucharest is Romanias capital and largest city, as well the main political, administrative, economic, nancial, banking, educational, scientic and cultural center of the country. With more than 2.4 millioninhabitants in the urban area, Bucharest is one of the largest cities in Southeastern Europe.Legend has it that Bucharest was founded by a shepherd named Bucur (bucurie; literally joy) who built a church on the right bank of the Dmbo-via River.e city, which lies on the Wallachian plains between the Carpathian foothills and the Danube River, was settled by Geto-Dacians as early as 70 BC. By 1459 a princely residence and military citadel had been established under the chancellery of Prince Vladepe. By the end of the 17th century, the city was the capital of Wallachia and ranked among southeastern Europes wealthiest cities and became the national capital in 1862..e early 20th century was Bucharests golden age. Large neoclassical buildings sprang up, fashionable parks were laid out and landscaped on Parisian models and, by the end of the 1930s, Bucharest was known throughout Europe as Little Paris.Although many areas of Bucharest were demolished in the Communist period, to make way for themonocolor neighborhoods that had the same architecture, it still retains the old charm.Bucharest has beneted from an economic boom along with the EU grants that have helped rebuild neglected parts of the city, such as the historic Lipscani area.Today the city is a mix of old and new, a mix of traditional and modern, East and West, which gives the rst appearance of an eclectic city.
