The importance of producing electricity through renewable energy sources was reaffirmed by the European Commission in its ‘climate plan’ which anticipates an overall target of 20% of renewable energy in energy consumption before 2020.

So far, however, development has been uneven across the EU, and renewable energies still represent only a small share of the EU’s total energy mix relative to the dominance of gas, oil and coal. With European countries now committed to rapidly increasing the amount of electric power generated from renewables in order to achieve the targets, the energy sector must determine how and where to focus resources effectively.

Building on the overwhelming success of its energy events in Europe, Platts inaugural European Renewable Energy conference will provide attendees with not only an overview of each area involved in the renewable energy sector from finance, governments, construction, operation and technology providers, it will also take an in depth look into number of case study examples of the implementation of new projects in renewable power generation across Europe.

Providing unrivalled business and networking opportunities, European Renewable Energy 2009 is a leading event that cannot be missed by those involved in all areas of the renewable energy industry.
