German American Energy Conference Focuses on Advancement of Renewable Energy Projects

Berlin, Germany | Posted on March 26th, 2010

An update on current renewable energy projects in Germany and the U.S. was the focus today at the 2nd German American Energy Conference hosted at the House of German Business. This year's theme, "Promising Markets for Renewables and Energy Efficiency," brought U.S. and German business executives together to talk about ongoing projects in the clean energy sector. Organized by the German American Chambers of Commerce and the German Energy Agency GmbH (dena), the event also covered energy efficiency topics, including the current incentives situation in the U.S. at the federal and state levels, as well as current developments in the wind, solar and bioenergy sectors.

"The German-American Energy Conference is a perfect platform for exchanging ideas for participating in and supporting the development of renewable energy technologies," said Jyl Safier, Director of Marketing for the Regional Operations Group, Americas region, at Coenergy. "Germany's decades of experience in the renewables sector can translate into a
beneficial partnership for U.S. and German businesses."

Berlin Partner, the business development agency for Berlin, was one of the supporters of the conference. Berlin has become a global hotspot for energy development and research and is home to universities and research institutes that help further the development and advance of renewable energy technologies and projects.

Speakers at the conference included: Michael Eckhart, President, American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE); Scott Minos, Senior Policy & Communications Specialist, U.S. Department of Energy (DoE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy; and Hermann Albers, President, German WindEnergy Association.

"Berlin is leading Germany in becoming an important country for the development of sustainable growth technologies," said Ren Gurka, Managing Director of Berlin Partner GmbH. "There are unlimited synergies, including renewable energy, that can make both Germany and the U.S. global energy powerhouses," he added.
