Description

Event Date: 4-5 December 2006
Location: Stamford Hotel, 111 Little Collins Street, Melbourne, Australia

Investigating contributors to growth in the alternative energy market, showcasing lucrative sectors for investment and development and examining benchmarks for successful integration into existing energy and economic frameworks.

Conference Description:

Interest in alternatives to conventional fossil fuel based energy sources is ever increasing as their environmental impacts become more apparent. The link between greenhouse gas emissions generated by these fuels and the trend toward global warming has been clearly established. Renewables, nuclear energy and coal and gas technologies with increased efficiency will pave the road to a stable climate; as they generate low or zero carbon emissions and as such, are lucrative greenhouse solutions. Government regulatory shifts, such as carbon trading schemes, mandatory emission benchmarks and minimum renewable energy targets are leading strong growth in alternative energy. According to Erwin Jackson of the Australian Conservation Foundation, around 1/3 of new investment worldwide is channeled into clean energy alternatives.

marcus evans Alternative Energy Forum will provide an overview of the framework underpinning the market. It will keep you abreast of the consequences of regulatory shifts for the alternative and conventional energy industries, big energy users and investors. Through international case studies and keynote addresses by the leaders in strategic development, you will gain a robust understanding of how alternative energy systems can be successfully integrated into our existing infrastructure. It will also highlight the latest exciting innovations, as well as tried and tested technologies and their implications for investors and developers.
