======== MONDAY 16 APRIL: EU SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR ALL SUMMIT ===============

On 16 April, the European Commission and the Danish Presidency of the EU
Council will host the EU Sustainable Energy for All Summit. This event will
bring together high-level representatives from the EU, United Nations,
developing countries, industry and civil society organisations committed to
achieving sustainable energy for all by 2030. This ambitious goal was set up
by a High Level Group led by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, of which
Commissioner Piebalgs is a Member.

The Summit will be opened by European Commission President José Manuel
Barroso, and UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon. Other high profile guests are
expected to include Michelle Bachelet (Executive Director, UN Women), Armando
Guebuza, President of Mozambique, Donald Kaberuka, President of the African
Development Bank Group, Werner Hoyer, President of European Investment Bank
and Dr. Kandeh Yumkella, Director General of United Nations Industrial
Development Organisation. Commissioner Piebalgs will co-chair the event and
give the closing speech together with Christian Friis Bach Danish Minister
for Development Cooperation.

As the largest provider of development assistance in the world, the EU plays
a crucial role in efforts to end energy poverty around the globe. However,
providing universal access to sustainable energy will require the combined
action of a large coalition of actors from the public and private sectors
alike.

The conference aims to mobilise the efforts of all concerned in order to
promote growth in developing countries through access to sustainable energy.
It will also put a special focus on gender and access to sustainable energy
for women. This summit will be important; both in preparing for the UN
Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in Brazil in June 2012 and in
helping to define the way forward for the EU's contribution to the
Sustainable Energy for All initiative.

*The background:*

Around 1.3 billion people in the world are deprived of access to electricity
and the opportunities it provides for working, learning or operating a
business.

Some 2.7 billion people use wood, coal, charcoal or animal waste to cook
their meals and heat their homes, exposing themselves and their families to
smoke and fumes that damage their health and kill nearly 2 million people
every year.

Without access to energy we cannot achieve the Millennium Development Goals
– nor can we promote economic development. It is this unacceptable
situation which prompted UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to launch his
"Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All)" initiative September 2011.

The EU offers expertise as well as development funding to provide access to
secure, affordable, clean and sustainable energy services. This UN initiative
therefore presents a significant opportunity for the EU and developing
countries to further cooperate with public institutions, businesses, research
institutions and civil society in order to help make sure that energy is
accessible for everyone.

-------- ENGINEER YOUR WAY TO A FULLY OPTIMISED & PROFITABLE CSP PLANT -------

As the industry matures and plants come into operation, CSP must become
competitive without relying on government support. In 2012, the name of the
game is to reduce costs and increase efficiency to the maximum.

*The CSP Optimisation Summit *will delve deep into those critical
improvements with utmost impact in optimising a CSP project or operating
plant. Since the path to optimisation is paved by crucial developments in
various fields, this event focuses on beating those technical challenges
faced by developers, engineers, operators and project & technology managers.

This technical summit will unite 150+ experts to share experiences,
innovations and lessons learned (and mistakes!) on how to optimise a CSP
plant, reduce costs, increase efficiencies and make CSP power feasible, right
now!

Built on the unprecedented success of our CSP Today global event series, a
rapidly growing database of international subscribers and the urgent need to
optimise CSP’performance, this summit is much anticipated and scheduled in
the major player’s calendars as a technical must attend event in 2012.
