Summit Book shows energy leaders bullish on medium term but divided on short term for clean power sector


The challenging views of delegates at the annual New Energy Finance Summit in London on 4, 5 and 6 March 2009 are highlighted in a special 68-page book on the event, published this week (see electronic version attached to this email).

The Summit Book is a stimulating record of the lively debates between 300 delegates and thought-leaders on issues such as the effectiveness of government “green stimulus” programmes, ways to address the shortage of bank debt for renewable energy projects, and the outlook for a global deal on carbon emissions at Copenhagen.
