International Forum for Renewable Energy

Always beloved, but so little money: When it comes to mandatory invest-ments, renewable energies still suffer defeat in the international picture.

26 January 2005 - 27 January 2005
Germany

Always beloved, but so little money: When it comes to mandatory invest-ments, renewable energies still suffer defeat in the international picture. If the announced developments goals in many states are actually to be com-plied with, and if climate protection is really to be taken seriously, then more money must flow to renewable energies and less to conventional power plants.
The costs for climate-friendly electricity from wind or photovoltaic cells have indeed been significantly reduced in the last ten years. But, an anything but investment-friendly climate for renewable energies still prevails worldwide. Aside from the political barriers that wind, sun, and biomass must overcome, structural problems must also be conquered: Distrustful in-vestors have little know-how about renewable matters, transaction costs are rising, there is a lack of adequate financial models, and small projects need more time to return a profit.
The international congress and trade fair CLEAN ENERGY POWER® 2005 in Berlin addresses this issue. The highly-ranked workshop International Project Financing for Export and Technology Transfer scheduled at the event should build bridges between the sectors. It will centre on the ques-tion how is technology transfer for renewable energies financed and organ-ized?
Experts from international financial institutions and banks will present inno-vative financing mechanism. Promotional programmes and funds are li-kewise a topic of the workshop as well as the development in China and other interesting markets. Representatives from the Federal Ministry of the Environment and the Environment Programme of the United Nations ,(UNEP) will report about the follow-up process of the Renewable Energy Conference in Bonn as well as its consequences regarding financing ques-tions and development policy.
Target groups are manufacturers and project developers as well as repre-sentatives of financial sectors and NGOs working in environmental and de-velopmental sectors.
Visitors from more than 30 countries, including 800 conference participants, are expected at CLEAN ENERGY POWER® 2005.
