Future Cleantech Forum - The first speakers are announced

Renewable energies will play a key role in the future. The objectives of the Future Cleantech Forum which will take place at the Palexpo Congress Centre from October 29th to 31st, 2012 are to intensify the exchange of information and know-how between researchers and enhance collaboration between representatives of the industry, the economy and governments.

First speakers announced for Future Cleantech Forum
This year's edition of the Future Cleantech Forum will be launched with a debate on how to best define a strategy to deploy rapidly renewable energies. This debate will start by exploring the current energy use and mix and we will look at current bottlenecks when deploying renewable energies. These elements will allow us to define the most realistic and adapted strategy to move towards renewable strategies. We will be looking at questions like: What is the current energy mix and what have been the trends of the last years? When looking at the current mix and trends, what are feasible scenarios of change for the coming years? And finally what are the main roadblocks to a speedy implementation of renewable energies, and are there regional differences throughout Europe?

In this debate we will be able to hear experts like:

Professor Hans Bjoern Puettgen is Director of the Energy Center at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne EPFL. Prof. Puettgen is member of the Federal Commission for Energetic Research (CORE) since January 2008. CORE is the consultant of the Federal Office of Energy (OFEN) in the field of energy questions and priorities in financing. Prof. Puettgen is a member of the steering committee of the Swiss Competence Center Energy and Mobility (CCEM). He is also on the board of directors of ElectroSuisse.

Markus Wrake is head of the Energy Technology Perspectives Project (ETP) at the International Energy Agency (IEA). ETP is the flagship publication on energy technology of the IEA and, alongside the World Energy Outlook, the most prominent product of the Agency. Before joining the IEA, Markus Wrake was head of the Economics and Policy unit at IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Markus Wrake holds a PhD. in Environmental Management and Economics from the University of Gothenburg and an M.Sc in Environmental Engineering from Uppsala University.
