1 February 2013 Sheraton Frankfurt Airport Hotel & Conference Centre, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

1,200 guests from the world of politics, business and the financial sector followed the ThomasLloyd Cleantech Congress Europe 2013 in Frankfurt discussions guided by conference moderator Sabine Christiansen with experts from the ThomasLloyd Group and international keynote speakers including Lord Nicholas Stern, Arnold Schwarzenegger and His Highness Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Ali Al Nuaimi regarding the future and need for global infrastructure investment and commitment to clean technologies. Over 5,000 guests followed the event via a live multi-lingual webcast that was available across the world.

The ThomasLloyd Cleantech Congress sets industry-wide standards in Europe, and builds interdisciplinary exchange between the various stakeholders involved in major infrastructure projects. Sustainable energy policy development in high growth and emerging markets will have crucial importance not only for current and future generations, but will also be the basis for further growth in these regions and consequently e.g. a key aspect for the 'Asian Century'.

T.U. MICHAEL SIEG, Chairman, CEO & Founder of the ThomasLloyd Group

EMERGING ECONOMIES: GLOBAL DEMAND FOR ENERGY WILL CONTINUE TO RISE

Delegates and speakers agreed that the global demand for energy would continue to rise over the coming years as a result of population growth, rising income and continued industrialisation. The emerging economies in particular will play a substantial role in this increased consumption in the future. According to the BP Energy Outlook 2030, non-OECD countries will make up around 90% of the worldwide increase in population by 2030. At the same time, the share of these countries in the rising energy demand will be around 93%.

KEYNOTE-SPEAKER:

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger, 38th Governor of California

  • Prof. Lord Nicholas Stern, Leading Global Economist and Chairman of the LSE Grantham Institute

  • His Highness Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Ali Al Nuaimi, Ambassador of World Green Citizen from the United Arab Emirates
