Renewables Finance Forum (RenewFi-2)
Opportunities in Renewable Energy Finance
April 29-30, 2015
Global investment in renewable energy, chiefly wind and solar power, rose substantially in 2014, to $270 billion. This was partly thanks to subsidies in the developed world, including the 30% US federal tax credit for solar projects. Will this growth continue? Some claim it is at an inflection point due to increasing concerns about climate change and volatile fossil energy prices, among others.
This 2-day conference was held in the exclusive Corinthian Event Center, an historic landmark in the heart of downtown San Jose. The main presentations were held in the Grand Ballroom, with numerous private rooms used for breakout sessions, delivering abundant opportunities to learn, network, and get deals done.
Venue: Corinthian Event Center, San Jose, CA
