Country Pavilions presenting at CARBON EXPO
Regional Pavilions CDM/JI Host Countries
Around 45 developing countries and economies in transition will showcase their projects under the CDM, discuss opportunities in the CDM market and in the post-2012 world that could see carbon finance moving into programs and sectors-scaling up from individual projects to sector-wide, programmatic interventions, like energy efficiency, transportation and creating urban carbon assets.
From the start of CARBON EXPO in 2004, these pavilions have been a centerpiece of this event’s Trade Fair - and continue to be. Featured regions that will be present are: Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
In this 2009 edition, the German Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) and the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) will continue the successful initiative of staging a pavilion. Eleven companies and institutions will present under one roof the vast spectrum of German technology and services available for climate protection. Visitors will be presented with the variety of high-quality German offerings available on the CO2 market for emissions trading and for participation in the project-based mechanisms Joint Implementation (JI) and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
CARBON EXPO 2010 will furthermore receive prominent support from the German government, in particular from Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel and the Federal Minister for the Environment, Norbert Röttgen, who will officially open CARBON EXPO.
For the fourth consecutive time, the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) will be organizing the Pavilion.
JBIC aims to introduce various Japanese technologies for energy efficiency and renewable energy and also information on the Japanese Market including demand, pricing and its trading system.
The UK Climate Change Projects Office (CCPO) will once again bring together a host of UK companies with unparalleled climate change experience offering a wide variety of carbon market services including project developers and financiers, carbon offset providers, carbon managers and carbon news agencies and research organisations.
ICEX (Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade) has traditionally been present with a pavilion at CARBON EXPO in Cologne, shared by the Spanish Government and relevant Spanish companies.
Power companies, traders, designated operational entities, consultants and different Spanish administrations will be featured.
The presence of the Host Country pavilions as well as the high number of exhibitors presenting within the four country pavilions underline the significance and global outreach of Carbon Expo.
