The future of renewable energy depends on European countries trying to outdo each other and become the champion of renewable energy on the continent.
This is according to Thomas Dalsgaard, head of group regulatory affairs at DONG Energy, who was speaking at this week's European Future Energy Forum.
"It will be the most ambitious countries that will host the industrialisation of the renewable sector," he told delegates at the three-day event, which was held at the ExCel Centre in London.
"There is very solid momentum in the industry and strong competition amongst the suppliers of renewable energy."
Abu Dhabi could be one of those which pushes forward with renewable energy usage in an attempt to become one of the champions of the industry.
Dr Sultan Al Jaber, chief executive officer and managing director of Masdar, stated that Abu Dhabi wants to push climate change issues to the forefront of the international agenda.
European energy ministers such as Chris Huhne from the UK's coalition government also spoke at the European Future Energy Forum.
