Chairmen's Message

Dear ladies and gentleman, dear colleagues,

According to leading climate experts an efficient and preventive climate protection strategy requires  a 50% reduction of the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Taking this fact into account, and considering the very unequal access to energy services in industrial and developing countries, the dramatic situation becomes even more apparent – more than 2 billion people in developing countries do not have access to modern energy supplies therefore in the decades to come energy consumption in these countries will increase considerably. So to significantly decrease the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions will only be possible by relying on energy systems based on renewable energy sources.

The initiative “Sustainable Energy for All” (SE4All) released by UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon, was the stimulus for an international dialogue on energy in developing countries. SE4All places great emphasis on providing access to affordable, secure, and reliable healthy energy services and energy sources,  that is renewable energy sources for people in developing countries.  

The need to create energy economies and energy infrastructures in developing countries, the decentralized energy demand in rural areas, and the large solar resource in most of these countries are perfect conditions for implementing new technologies that utilize renewable energy sources. Moreover, the increased use of locally available resources can contribute to many countries’ debt-relief efforts as the importation of energy is one of the contributing factors to high level of debts in developing countries.

Solar thermal systems, photovoltaics, solar drying and solar cooking can 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 economic barriers for implementing solar technologies. The conference offers a forum for know-how transfer and exchange of experiences between international solar experts and people working in the field of development cooperation and development policies.

The conference advisory board and the OTTI organizing team are pleased to welcome you to the conference “Solar Energy Technology in Development Cooperation”

Programme

Workshop

mainhaus Stadthotel Frankfurt

Friday, November 7th, 2014, 9.00 – 15.00 hrs

Individual counseling for develoPPP.de project ideas

Through the develoPPP.de programme, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) fosters the involvement of the private sector in development cooperation at the point where business opportunities and development policy initiatives intersect. develoPPP.de helps businesses to minimise the risk of their international involvement. It provides companies investing in developing and emerging countries with financial and, if required, also professional support. The company is responsible for covering at least half of the overall costs; BMZ contributes up to a maximum of EUR 200,000. These development partnerships with the private sector may last up to three years. 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 available at www.developpp.de

The develoPPP.de - Workshop allows solar companies to discuss initial project ideas with project manager from the develoPPP.de implementing organizations.

  • Would the project idea be eligible for develoPPP.de support?
  • How do requirements and processes for participation, costs, risks and funding look like?
  • Which are best practices in existing develoPPP.de projects in the solar sector?

Please announce your interest in a individual mail to Gabriele.struthoff-mueller@otti.de.

You will be asked to prepare a short outline of the project idea.
