The first edition of the Black Sea Renewable Energy Forum that began yesterday in Bucharest seeks to give an overview of the landscape of renewable energy sources and modalities of promoting them in South-Eastern Europe. Another aim of the forum will be to identify opportunities and obstacles in the promotion of renewable energy in the region, while also looking at instances of best practice in the integration of renewable energy sources within existing legislative frameworks. At the same time, the forum will constitute a good opportunity to present challenged in respect to solar, wind, wave, biomass, geo-thermal energies and bio-fuels. The event brings together prominent businesspeople and decision-makers in the field both from Romania and from abroad, representatives of governments of countries in the Black Sea region, of energy companies that are already operating or contemplating operations in the region, representatives of energy utility providers, so on and so forth.
