The Global Clean Energy Forum is convened by the International Herald Tribune, one of the world's most respected and influential media brands.

Since 2007, the IHT has set the agenda in writing on energy and the environment with the insightful reporting and analysis of its award-winning Business of Green series. It has been a logical step to bring to life the issues reported on those pages at the Global Clean Energy Forum.

This year's event will address the topics critical to the future development of clean energy, including:

• The role of renewables post-Fukushima
• The future of nuclear in the energy mix
• Alternative funding sources in the absence of feed-in tariffs and subsidies
• How can renewables be made more cost competitive?
• What advances in clean energy technology are on the horizon?
• Assessing the outlook for COP 17
• What political mechanisms will support the development of clean energy?

The forum provides an unparalleled opportunity to:

•Meet financiers keen to invest in renewable energy projects
•Enjoy incredible networking opportunities - meet and mingle with hundreds of world-renowned business figures, global thought leaders and key decision makers from the clean energy community
•See speakers from the very highest levels of government, industry and finance, and find out their thoughts on the future of clean energy
•Understand the different drivers behind renewable energy development
•Discover new clean energy opportunities – as well as learning about the challenges facing each market sector
