World Expo Center Powering the New Champions: How Green Can US$ 20 Trillion Be?
- Plenary Hall The International Energy Agency (IEA) forecasts that US$ 20 trillion in new investment
is required to meet world energy needs by 2030. Much of this investment is required in
the world's fastest-growing economies and expectations for China alone amount to
18% of the total. Innovative policies and technologies present significant opportunities
to ensure economic growth and social development while minimizing the unintended
costs of investments such as urban air pollution, resource depletion, health damage,
water stress and climate change.
1) How can fast-growing economies realize and deploy domestic innovation and clean
technology breakthroughs?

Friday 7 September

2) How can a focus on enhanced energy efficiency and demand-side management

3) What are the practical, most cost-effective ways to reduce carbon emissions across
various sectors, and how can these be scaled up in the context of a carbon
constrained world?

World Expo Center The biofuels market is one of the fastest growing in the world. However, large-scale
- WorkSpace 2 production will likely exacerbate growing water stress, as well as have knock-on

of the issues, potential limitations and possible consequences of biofuels?
2) Which issues most require cross-industry dialogue to achieve a common
understanding?
3) Can the issues discussed be used to produce a set of recommendations or
