The Organisation for the promotion of energy technologies (OPET) of Bavaria-Austria will host two seminars on 7 and 8 March as part of World Energy Days 2002.
The first seminar, on 7 March, will address the issue of 'Innovative solar technologies', giving an overview of future trends, technical innovations and successful solar projects throughout the world.
On 8 March, a seminar on 'Financing sustainable energy investment' will outline successful financing schemes that make sustainable energy investment worthwhile for investors, owners and the general public.
