But, the people and the sessions they presented were just as eye opening. And, as I sat listening to my fellow panelists in our Renewable Energy Policy & Finance session, I was struck by how quickly the RE game is changing in Europe—even in the few months since I had first conceived of my paper topic. These folks were keeping up, and I gathered many updates and other tidbits to incorporate into my presentation on the fly.
If you are interested in my paper—which assesses London’s Renewable Energy Foundation’s (REF)recommendations for how to “correct” the UK’s Renewables Obligation to more justly promote EE and RE, you can grab the paper and the slides right here:
One of the amazing things about writing this paper and presenting it in Germany this summer was that I had pieced together the fact that many organizations had come to the same conclusions that REF had—and, that Parliament was in the process of implementing some of those recommendations literally as I was speaking. REF—and I—couldn’t have asked for better validation.
