International SIG ‘Renewable Energy: Going Green in the East’

The continual growth of Renewable, or Green, energy in China, India and Japan will no doubt lead to plentiful opportunities for companies working in the energy saving, low power, renewable and alternative energy sectors. Join industry experts at this half day event to explore the opportunities available to Cambridge Wireless members in the expanding Green Energy and Power Management business sectors in all three major markets China, India, and Japan. Confirmed speakers for this event are Steve Crane of BusinessLink Japan, Was Rahman of Dolphin Advisory, Josh Cooper of Hildebrand, Ting Zhang of China Business Solutions and Richard Ord of Amantys.

There are limited FREE places available at this event.

Market experts, the Cambridge Wireless SIG Champions, will precede the speakers to outline present opportunities within each market sector before each speaker presents. Here are recent summaries from all three eastern markets, which will be deliberated during this thought-provoking event:


As the world absorbs the impact of Tokyo’s decision to phase out nuclear power over the next three decades, some are starting to ask if the next big centre of renewable energy growth will be Japan. Indeed, two years on from the earthquake and tsunami the country is managing a huge shift in power management demands. The country has plans that envisage the investment of Y38tn ($483bn) in non-hydroelectric renewable energy, plus an extra Y84tn in energy-efficient technology. This could provide a significant stimulus for the development of a major renewable energy market in Japan.

Within the G-20, India is on track to climb from tenth to third place in terms of clean power project investments worldwide.  The country displayed the fastest expansion rate for investment of any large renewables market in the world in 2011, with a 62% increase to $12 billion, and the annual clean energy investment is forecast to grow by as much as 763% over the next 10 years.

According to a recently released United Nations report, global investment in renewable energy reached a record $257 billion in 2011. Globally, renewable energy covers approximately 16.7% of energy consumption. China was responsible for almost one-fifth of total global investment, spending $52 billion on renewable energy in 2011. According to China’s 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015), the country will spend $473.1 billion on clean energy investments over the next five years. China’s goal is to have 20% of its total energy demand sourced from renewable energy by 2020.
