Renewable Energy is one of the most urgent challenges of this century that the world must address. The scientific community is unanimous in telling us that if we do not rapidly switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy, there is a danger that global warming will pass a tipping point beyond which uncontrollable feedback loops will lead to drastically increased temperatures.

With this in mind, the 2018 Renewable Energy and Smart Grid (ICT) Conference being held under the theme: “Energy Resilience and Independence”, will gather researchers, thought leaders, utility and energy professionals and vendors  and provide them with a unique platform to delve deeply into renewable energy and resilience from both a global and a regional perspective.

This conference is being strategically aligned with our CARILEC Renewable Energy Community (CAREC) platform current initiative to drive more knowledge, sharing and collaboration in the region’s energy sphere. 

The Conference will feature interactive-style workshops, networking opportunities, peer-to-peer learning and practical demonstrations of renewable energy best practice, resiliency planning, CARILEC Renewable Energy Community, and disaster management. It will also serve as a space for women professionals to connect with each other under the CARILEC & Women in Energy (WIRE) Strategic Partnership.

Downtown Miami


Access the Miami Guide Here

Downtown Miami is Miami’s bustling epicenter, packed with gleaming skyscrapers, sweeping bay views, and hidden places to explore. It’s a neighborhood of layers—decades of history overlapping and colliding; tourism destinations like Port of Miami alongside local favorites like American Airlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat; century-old buildings among new pockets of young residents who call the neighborhood home.

Where its southern neighbor Brickell is modern, towering, and dense, Downtown Miami is a mix of the old and the new. It was the site of one of Miami’s earliest international attractions, Henry Flagler’s Royal Palm Hotel, which opened in 1897 along the bank of the Miami River. Downtown Miami was home to Miami’s first development boom in the 1910s and 1920s, with Flagler Street at its core. Freedom Tower, listed here in our itinerary, was the entry point for Cuban refugees arriving in Miami in 1959.

Today, Downtown Miami’s population has doubled in fewer than 10 years, and those new residents have brought new restaurants, bars, shops, parks, and world-class museums.
