Share Article

Speakers include Macquarie Bank, Deutsche Bank, Deloitte, PWC, Solarcentury, WHEB Partners, Foresight Group & S&P.

Carbon Assets, a London based green consultancy practice, has today announced the date and initial speakers for its first global ‘Clean Energy Private Equity & Venture Capital’ Conference (CEPEC).

The event on 24-25 June 2013, in Central London, has been exclusively designed for both established and potential private equity and venture capital partners, and is focused on the growing Global Clean Energy and Renewable sectors.

The conference will provide business critical information, detailed financial analysis, genuine co-investment opportunities and decision-level networking to both sets of 'green' investors. The Green Transition Scoreboard (GTS) reported that since 2007 Private Sector Green Investment reached $3.6 trillion (USD).

Melvyn Solomon, CEO, Carbon Assets and Chief CEPEC Conference Leader said: “Across most European countries, renewable energy currently represents about 2% of total energy output, with the average target being 10%. This is a fraction of what it should be, and given Government initiatives, global political consensus and renewable innovation available, the trend for increased renewable energy capacity is increasing week on week, offering substantial investment opportunities for private investors. This conference is about helping investment professionals make better investment decisions, based upon genuine peer level experiences, and guiding them to take that ‘Green’ investment leap.

He continued: “CEPEC is shaping up to be a unique event, as it will be a rare opportunity to hear how the most successful investors approach their investments, whilst also being honest about the investment challenges and pitfalls faced. CEPEC delegates will be privy to the type of information usually only discussed behind closed doors in the boardroom.”

Initial speakers include: Deloitte, PWC, F&C Private Equity, Foresight Group, Solarcentury, Deutsche Bank, Octopus Ventures, S&P, Investec Bank, DBL Investors, Macquarie Bank, NIBC Bank, Amber Green, Truestone Asset Management, Disruptive Capital, Beetle Capital, Ariya Capital, L Investments, Corren Troen, Mirabaud Securities LLP, RobecoSAM Group, Ahlstrom Capital, Eoxis Energy, Mountain Cleantech, Renewable Tech Ventures and WHEB Partners.

Melvyn Solomon – Biography:
Melvyn Solomon has spent much of his professional career as a highly successful City of London headhunter working mainly for banking clients such as BofA, HVB, RBS, RBCC specialising in fixed income and senior FX positions. Having been presented scientific data in support of climate change in 2007, he launched Carbon Assets 12 months later. Carbon Assets is a specialist green consultancy which supports parties brokering deals between a network of City of London investors and cleantech businesses or funds outside the UK. Having spoken at numerous conferences around the world, he identified an opportunity to create a unique private equity venture capital conference, which focuses mainly on clean energy. This was partly motivated by an interest in bringing new capital to the sector and the desire to create a unique event, that would act as a coming of minds in an investment master class format, hence CEPEC was born.
