Home > Press > Program Unveiled for Green Energy Summit 2009: "Plug in to Green Future"

Abstract:
The time to act is now! Green is no longer in champagne activism territory; it has firmly positioned itself in the business mainstream as the next clean engine for economic growth. With rapid strides in technology, economic pressures, high energy prices, resource shortages, environmental threats, and compliance imperatives driving unprecedented growth in green energy, the pressure on scientists, technologists, government, and the industry to develop and adopt new methods for harnessing green energy has never been this overpowering.

Program Unveiled for Green Energy Summit 2009: "Plug in to Green Future"

Program Unveiled for Green Energy
Summit 2009
Must Attend Event for Solar, Wind, Biomass, GreenFuels, Green IT, Green Builings, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

December 15, 2008, Bangalore: From March 4-6, world leaders in the renewable, green, clean technology and energy efficiency sectors will gather in Bangalore for Green Energy Summit 2009. The summit is a highly efficient forum for varied stakeholders
from solar, wind, biomass, IT, transport, construction, aviation, nanotechnology and biotechnology to bring together the business and science of the most important and relevant Green Energy and Clean technologies ( www.greenenergysummit.com ).

Green Energy Summit has two objectives, amidst a vast array of highly complex issues. First, to bring to a single, public platform - stakeholders and decision-makers from policy, finance, manufacturing and trade. Second, to help catalyze solutions, initiatives and opportunities, so that Green Business, and therefore the necessary change we seek so desperately, can prosper.

"While the business opportunities in the future are enormous, we understand the need for businesses today to gain a foothold so that economically viable change can be more logical, active and urgent. To facilitate this, we will be bringing together those who are creating, propagating and establishing the systems and standards that are needed, so there can be a firm stimulus for action that goes far beyond the rhetoric, with practicable initiatives being addressed," says Dilip Thomas Steering Committee Member/Program Chair & CEO of Saltmarch Media, the organizers of Green Energy Summit ( www.greenenergysummit.com/ )

"Green Energy Summit is unique in that it endeavours to identify practical steps that will be of interest to decision makers in govt, business, industry and civil society in order to move the agenda forward with speed and urgency," adds Dr. J Gururaja, Former Sr. Advisor to United Nations. Among the participants expected to explore a sustainable future at GES are the sector's leading financiers, entrepreneurs, corporations, scientists, policy-makers, city planners and the buyers and sellers.

The first announcement of the complete program has been published from the summit website ( greenenergysummit.com/programOverview.html ). Featured speakers include the finest group of 'faculty' ever assembled on this subject:

-"Vision for Green Energy" -- Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Former President of India
-"Climate Change and Green Energy"-- Dr. R K Pachauri, IPCC
-"New Policy Initiatives for a Green Energy Future" -- Vilas Rao Muttemwar, Minister, MNRE, GoI
-"Greening India's Power Sector" -- Dr. Jairam Ramesh, MoS - Power & Commerce
-"Solar Photovoltatics: Global Perspectives" -- Dr. Hermann Scheer, Member of Parliament, Germany
-"Conflict/Integration between Energy Security and Climate Change Policies" -- H.E. Corrado Clini, Ministry for the Environment Land and Sea, Italy
-"Green Energy, Global Economy and the Planet" -- Dr. Christopher Flavin, Worldwatch Institute
-"The Global Energy Assessment for 2009" -- Prof. Thomas B. Johansson, IIIEE, Lund University
-"Financing Challenges and Opportunities for Green Energy Development" -- Michael T. Eckhart, ACORE
-"Learning from the European Target Figures for 2010" -- Dr. Wolfgang Palz, WCRE
-"Impact of Policy Initiatives and the Roadmap for Green Energy Development" -- Dr. Mohamed T. El-Ashry, REN21
-"Fostering the China-India Collaboration on Green Energy" -- Policy Makers and Industries from China
-"Global Energy Future - New Perspectives" -- Dr. Yogi Goswami, Former President, International Solar Energy Society
-"Partnership Strategies for Promoting Green Energy and Energy Efficiency" -- Dr. Marianne Osterkorn, REEEP
-"Regulators' Perspectives on Encouraging Energy Efficiency and Demand Management" -- Pramod Deo, CERC
-"Status Quo and Roadmap for Green Energy Investments in Emerging Markets" -- Dr. H. Jeffrey Leonard, GEF
-"PPP in the future financing of Green Energy and Climate Change Projects" -- Dr. Jose Achache, GEO

Besides the plenaries, the power panels, industry-focussed sessions and workshops will cover topics including policy & framework, finance & strategy, CDM, China- Middle East-collaboration, solar, wind, fuels & transportation, green IT, energy efficiency, green buildings, small hydro, cogeneration, green buildings & architecture, environment. There is also a conclave of bankers, VCs, PE investors and aid organizations and a conclave of Chief Secretaries, Energy Secretaries and administrators to drive and debate policy and implementation.

Apart from the main conference, there will be a dedicated Exhibition area to showcase the work of vendors from Solar, Wind, Biomass, Green Fuels, Green IT, Green Buildings and Materials, Equipment manufacturers, the government, nodal agencies and the industry. Plans are also afoot to fund five practical and result-oriented projects in the areas of primary healthcare, SPV for drinking water, BIPV, "IT Lights-Off Day" and other applications; the projects will be announced at the Green Energy Awards ceremony on 6 March 2009.

Dr. Arcot Ramachandran, former UN Under Secretary General and chairperson of the summit, says, "We are also planning for the rural voice to be heard, for children to become green conscious, for achievers to be felicitated and, for participants to be taken to real-life implementations of renewable energy, so they can see and feel the promise of renewable and clean technology."

Needless to say, organisations participating in the summit have the opportunity to reinforce its commitment to sustainable development and promote its innovative green technologies and strategies with International and Indian companies, renewable energy intelligentsia, R&D and academic institutions, as well as the government, on several of the key initiatives their companies are driving.
