Companies and governments have serious investments, like Daxu, which already won an Ashden Award for producing over 25,000 efficient stoves that can burn crop waste for cooking and hot water and Agriculture ministers from 6 countries, Cambodia, China, Laos,Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam have endorsed the Core Agricultural Support Program, which will work toward increasing trade and investment in agriculture in the Greater Mekong Subregion.
The renewed interest in small and large-scale biomass-based electricity production schemes highlights the potential profits investors are to gain in this very important resource, specifically:
- As of 2005, bioenergy use has reached more than 20 million households in the rural areas, with methane gas as the main biofuel. Also more than 4000 bioenergy facilities produce 8 billion cubic metres every year of methane gas.
- As of 2010, electricity generation by bioenergy has reached 5 GW and the annual use of methane gas is 19 cubic kilometers by 2010
- By 2020, electricity generation by bioenergy will have reached 30 GW and the annual use of methane gas at 40 cubic kilometers by 2020.
Albeit bioenergy is a sector that offers significant opportunities for rural development in Africa and Asia, there’s a high level of uncertainty about future outcomes, including land consumption, demand for scarce water, competition with food production and harmful indirect land-use effects.
There’s a need for comprehensive analysis to help inform policy makers and investors about bioenergy investment returns, climate change and associated risk.
At the World Energy Investment Summit 2012 (18-19 September 2012, Shanghai), thought leaders unpack the various technical, economic and regulatory regimes that open the opportunity to realise the potential of various clean energy investment portfolios.
Focusing on the growing leadership of the Asia Pacific market, this exciting 2nd edition of World Energy Investment Summit 2012 (18-19 September 2012, Shanghai, China) will tackle important issues to ascertain whether to continue along chosen clean energy supply chains, reduce the risk exposure to higher carbon price in the future and take advantage of early movements, whose past delegates involved:

Why meet in Shanghai?
China has introduced the draft Climate Change Law that backs the continuation of CDM projects, but warns of “of possible “retaliatory approaches” to dealing with the EU’s inclusion of aviation within its Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
The World Energy Investment Summit 2012 brings together all the stakeholders from across the geothermal spectrum to find solutions to financial, regulatory and technical challenges, and to increase the role of geothermal in the world’s energy mix.
