Seminar "Green Energy Business - new clients, new markets"

Growing markets for renewable energy and energy efficiency offer enormous opportunities for new products and services. How can businesses make the most of these opportunities? How can they meet the simultaneous challenges of product and human resources development, of raising capital and of setting-up sales channels? The seminar addresses these questions and also how green energy business development can be supported by programmes, networks and public initiatives and how co-operation and partnerships can create regional development and employment.
