UK: Carbon Assets, a London based green consultancy practice, has announced the date and initial speakers for its first global ‘Clean Energy Private Equity & Venture Capital’ Conference (CEPEC).
The event on 24-25 June 2013, in Central London, has been exclusively designed for both established and potential private equity and venture capital partners, and is focused on the growing Global Clean Energy and Renewable sectors.
The conference will provide business critical information, detailed financial analysis, genuine co-investment opportunities and decision-level networking to both sets of 'green' investors. The Green Transition Scoreboard (GTS) reported that since 2007 Private Sector Green Investment reached $3.6 trillion (USD).
Melvyn Solomon, CEO, Carbon Assets and chief CEPEC conference leader, said: “Across most European countries, renewable energy currently represents about 2 percent of total energy output, with the average target being 10 percent. This is a fraction of what it should be, and given Government initiatives, global political consensus and renewable innovation available, the trend for increased renewable energy capacity is increasing week on week, offering substantial investment opportunities for private investors. This conference is about helping investment professionals make better investment decisions, based upon genuine peer level experiences, and guiding them to take that ‘Green’ investment leap.
“CEPEC is shaping up to be a unique event, as it will be a rare opportunity to hear how the most successful investors approach their investments, whilst also being honest about the investment challenges and pitfalls faced. CEPEC delegates will be privy to the type of information usually only discussed behind closed doors in the boardroom.”
Initial speakers include: Deloitte, PWC, F&C Private Equity, Foresight Group, Solarcentury, Deutsche Bank, Octopus Ventures, S&P, Investec Bank, DBL Investors, Macquarie Bank, NIBC Bank, Amber Green, Truestone Asset Management, Disruptive Capital, Beetle Capital, Ariya Capital, L Investments, Corren Troen, Mirabaud Securities LLP, RobecoSAM Group, Ahlstrom Capital, Eoxis Energy, Mountain Cleantech, Renewable Tech Ventures and WHEB Partners.
