EFEF HEADS TO GENEVA IN 2011

FOLLOWING SUCCESS IN LONDON THE EUROPEAN FUTURE ENERGY FORUM HEADS TO GENEVA FOR 2011

With 3,713 business people and decision makers from 53 countries attending the European Future Energy Forum in London 19-21 October 2010, the organisers are pleased to announce the next event in the European series will be held 10-12 October 2011 in Geneva.

The 2010 event was deemed a great success with HRH The Prince of Wales and David Cameron, UK Prime Minister, Chris Huhne, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change and Boris Johnson, Mayor of London officially welcoming delegates who met to debate issues and find solutions for the future of energy. 

Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, CEO of Masdar said

“The European Future Energy Forum has showed that it is the premier renewable energy conference and exhibition in Europe. Masdar looks forward to next year’s event in Geneva where we hope to continue our search for partnerships to address our future energy challenges.”

The Swiss government has committed their full support for the 2011 European Future Energy Forum with the Swiss President Micheline Calmy-Rey stating:

‘Geneva has a longstanding tradition and a strong reputation as a centre for the promotion of future-oriented technologies. I am confident that Geneva as the host city will make every effort to render the European Future Energy Forum 2011 a great success’

Pierre-François Unger, Minister, Department of Regional Affairs, Economy and Health, Republic and State of Geneva added

‘Convinced that it is both possible and necessary to reconcile environment and economic value creation, the Swiss authorities, both on national and federal levels, have undertaken concrete steps to promote the development of the clean technologies. In this context, hosting an event of such statue as the European Future Energy Forum is appropriate to embody our commitment towards those aims.’

Further details outlining plans for the Forum will be released shortly. See www.EuropeanFutureEnergyForum.com for further details and the presentations from the 2010 event or contact the team on [email protected]
