Intpow – Renewable Energy Forum 2015
Population growth, demographic and climate change considerations boost demand for renewable power solutions both in the developed and developing regions of the world. What are the industrial implications?
Markets are changing fast and utilities are struggling with old business models. Implications are immense for the global power industry and change strategies are sought. Where are the business opportunities? What are the risks? How can companies and nations change and prosper in the wake of the energy revolution?
Central institutions have developed scenarios with high expectations for deployment of further wind, solar and hydropower to supply the booming demand for renewable power generation. The COP 21 meeting will highlight the need for further actions.
The implications for Norway and the Norwegian industry are not at all clear. The IREF 2015 will increase awareness of the global changes that are taking place and highlight business opportunities that arise in the wake of the energy revolution.
