Trade Policy Mission to Peru to Focus on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency
The International Trade Administration is organizing a renewable energy and energy efficiency trade policy mission to Peru for Nov. 12-13. This mission will promote the export competitiveness of U.S. wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, hydropower, waste-to-energy, smart grid and energy efficiency industries and will support the Obama administration’s Look South initiative, which encourages companies to explore opportunities in the United States’ 11 free trade agreement partner countries in Latin America.
A minimum of 10 and maximum of 25 companies will be selected to participate in this mission. Each applicant must submit no later than Sept. 15 a completed mission application signed by a company officer, together with supplemental application materials, including adequate information on the company’s products and/or services, primary market objectives and goals for participation. Each applicant must also certify that the products or services it seeks to export through the mission are either produced in the U.S. or, if not, are marketed under the name of a U.S. firm and have at least 51% U.S. content of the value of the finished product or service.
