International Conference on Werner WeissSolar EnergyTechnology inDevelopmentCooperationFrankfurt, GermanyNovember 6th/7th,

Chairman’s MessageDear ladies and gentleman, dear colleagues,According to leading climate experts an efficient and preventiveclimate protection strategy requires a 50% reduction of the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Taking this factinto account, and considering the very unequal access to energyservices in industrial and developing countries, the dramatic situation becomes even more apparent – more than 2 billion people indeveloping countries do not have access to modern energy suppliestherefore in the decades to come energy consumption in thesecountries will increase considerably. So to significantly decrease theanthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions will only be possible byrelying on energy systems based on renewable energy sources.The initiative “Sustainable Energy for All” (SE4All) released by UNGeneral Secretary Ban Ki-Moon, was the stimulus for an international dialogue on energy in developing countries. SE4All places greatemphasis on providing access to affordable, secure, and reliablehealthy energy services and energy sources, that is renewableenergy sources for people in developing countries.The need to create energy economies and energy infrastructuresin developing countries, the decentralized energy demand in ruralareas, and the large solar resource in most of these countries areperfect conditions for implementing new technologies that utilizerenewable energy sources. Moreover, the increased use of locallyavailable resources can contribute to many countries’ debt-relief efforts as the importation of energy is one of the contributing factorsto high level of debts in developing countries.Solar thermal systems, photovoltaics, solar drying and solar cookingcan help to build a sustainable energy system in developing countries, and with the appropriate implementation provide local jobs.During the two-day conference participants will learn about, discuss and share knowledge and experiences on realized projects,project financing instruments, and social, political and economicbarriers for implementing solar technologies. The conferenceoffers a forum for know-how transfer and exchange of experiencesbetween international solar experts and people working in the fieldof development cooperation and development policies.The conference advisory board and the OTTI organizing team arepleased to welcome you to the conference “Solar Energy Technologyin Development Cooperation”Werner WeissAEE – Institute for Sustainable TechnologiesGleisdorf, Austria2

WorkshopWorkshopmainhaus Stadthotel FrankfurtFriday, November 7th, 2014,9.00 – 15.00 hrsIndividual counseling for project ideasThrough the programme, the German Federal Ministry forEconomic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) fosters the involvementof the private sector in development cooperation at the point wherebusiness opportunities and development policy initiatives helps businesses to minimise the risk of their international involvement. It provides companies investing in developing andemerging countries with financial and, if required, also professionalsupport. The company is responsible for covering at least half of theoverall costs; BMZ contributes up to a maximum of EUR 200,000. Thesedevelopment partnerships with the private sector may last up to threeyears. BMZ has appointed three public partners to implement the programme on its behalf: DEG – Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and sequa gGmbH. Further information are availableat www.developpp.deThe - Workshop allows solar companies to discuss initialproject ideas with project manager from the implementing organizations. Would the project idea be eligible for support? How do requirements and processes for participation, costs, risksand funding look like? Which are best practices in existing projects in thesolar sector?Please announce your interest in a individual mail [email protected] .You will be asked to prepare a short outline of the project idea.ProgrammeInternational Conference onSOLAR ENERGY TECHNOLOGYIN DEVELOPMENT COOPERATIONThursday, November 6th, 201409.30 Opening AddressGabriele Struthoff-Müller, OTTI, Regensburg, GermanyWerner Weiss, AEE- Institute for Sustainable Technologies,Gleisdorf, Austria4
