The opportunities for Cleantech businesses in China in 2009

The opportunities for Cleantech businesses in China in 2009

Over the past 30 years, China has developed into an economic superpower. It is entirely understandable that this boom has come at an enormous environmental cost. Air and waste are among the most heavily polluted in the world and China produces the largest proportion of damaging greenhouse gases. In order to tackle these problems, the Ministry for Environmental Protection in China has committed itself to expenditure of 1 trillion Yuan (USD 146 billion) over the next 3 years to get a grip on pollution and to develop energy-saving technologies. Environmental protection and the sectors which use resources responsibly will therefore be at the forefront of growth in the forthcoming round of investment in order to stimulate the domestic economy.

The report deals with the economic situation in China, the legislation relating to the environment and the strategies pursued to protect the environment. There is also an overview of the sectors in which Swiss companies may be able to participate. Additionally, there is information in the report about exhibitions and industrial associations.

BLUEPRINT FOR SUSTAINABLE USE OF RESOURCES 2013 – 2022

Hong Kong’s daily per capita domestic waste generation rate is high when compared to cities
in Asia at stages of economic development similar to ours. Since the mid-1990s, a number of
leading Asian cities have achieved very good results in waste reduction. Their experience tells
us that Hong Kong can do very much better if we take coordinated and simultaneous action
on waste prevention, reuse, recycling, recovery, treatment and landfi lling, as part of a whole
resources management chain. Hong Kong has fallen behind because we have only taken some
of the steps. We need to urgently fi ll in the gaps.

India- EU: Creating Market Alliances Building Access for “Waste-Water Management” Companies

India- EU: Creating Market Alliances Building Access for “Waste-Water Management” Companies

India, with ~ 1.15B population and 7.3% GDP growth, has become one of the world’s preferred investment destinations owing to its vibrant domestic market, technological capabilities, and cost advantage. India presents a host of opportunities to nations looking to expand and increase profitability especially when markets in regions such as Europe are stagnating and corporate profits are plummeting.

India is also witnessing a shift in focus towards “Green Technologies” in the wake of increased public awareness, environmental pressures, and conscious government support. The wastewater sector is also an area of focus due to diminishing
water resources and increasing population pressure. Water and wastewater treatment market in India is currently worth ~€ 954M and is expected to grow at ~13% in the next 3-4 years. Out of the total wastewater generated ~65% of the wastewater generated goes untreated, requiring imminent need for effective wastewater management.

Opportunities for clean technology. A review of South and Southern Africa.

Opportunities for clean technology. A review of South and Southern Africa.

The opportunity for Swiss clean technologies to expand into the Southern African market exists. Southern African trading and business conditions are sophisticated and should be understood as such. When required, Southern Africa does not hesitate to import products and services from all over the world, which renders the business environment a highly competitive one and Swiss companies should expect to encounter the same competition as elsewhere in the world. While large trade volumes imperatively require local manufacturing and setting up of business entities with most fixed costs in local currency [ABB for example], very small volumes would require a level of uniqueness that commands unbelievably high prices to be driven from Switzerland and cater for fluctuations in exchange rates, risks, remoteness, maintenance et cetera. The small to medium trade volume segment, requiring trading partners, local representative or at least permanent local presence, represents possibly the largest opportunities providing products or services offered are firmly niche market types.

Clean Energy Switzerland Finance Guide 2012

Clean Energy Switzerland Finance Guide 2012

Cleantech and renewable energy investing are probably the most worthwhile and at the same time the most difficult investment strategies to pursue. The creation of efficient, value-adding and sustainable vehicles to encapsulate these strategies is extremely challenging. To be equally attractive to different types of investors, equally effective when faced with different types of income as well as being continuously compliant in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex and restrictive regulatory environment, it is usually necessary to set up multi-jurisdictional structures. In-depth cross-disciplinary knowhow and experience is essential to design and implement these structures in an optimal manner. Using two case studies synthesised from a wealth of such assignments, this paper will demonstrate how a best-practice fund set-up for the cleantech and renewable energy investment industry can be tailored.

Energiestrategie 2050: Bericht des Teilprojekts Energienetze und Ausbaukosten

Die Energienetze sind als Bindeglied zwischen Produktion und Verbrauch ein zentrales Element des Energieversorgungssystems. Während Elektrizitäts- und Gasnetze sowohl eine grossräumige Übertragungsfunktion als auch eine lokale Verteilfunktion haben, sind Fern- und Nahwärmenetze lokal vor allem in urbanen Räumen mit hohen Energiedichten von Bedeutung. Die verschiedenen Energieversorgungsnetze werden in Zukunft viel integraler betrachtet werden müssen als bisher, da sie in einigen Bereichen deutlicher in Konkurrenz miteinander geraten (z.B. Wärmeversorgung via Strom/Wärmepumpen vs. Gas/WKK).

Auswirkungen eines verstärkten Ausbaus der dezentralen Erzeugung auf die Schweizer Verteilnetze

Auswirkungen eines verstärkten Ausbaus der dezentralen Erzeugung auf die Schweizer Verteilnetze

Das Bundesamt für Energie (BFE) hat in den vergangenen Jahren in einem umfangreichen Projekt mit dem Titel „Energieperspektiven 2035“ unter Mitwirkung verschiedener Institutio-nen und Dienstleister energiepolitische und wirtschaftliche Szenarien und Prognosen für die Schweiz erarbeitet. Ein hieraus hervorgegangener Bedarf für weitere Untersuchungen war die Frage, welche technischen und wirtschaftlichen Auswirkungen ein starker Ausbau der dezent-ralen Erzeugung auf die Übertragungs- und Verteilnetze und den Systembetrieb hätte. Kern-aufgabe des Projekts „Wirtschaftlichkeit dezentraler Einspeisungen in der Schweiz“, das wir federführend bearbeitet haben, war es, etwaige mit Netzveränderungen einhergehenden Mehr- oder Minderkosten grob zu quantifizieren und Wechselwirkungen mit relevanten Einflussfak-toren aufzuzeigen. In der Anfang 2010 abgeschlossenen Studie konnte gezeigt werden, dass für die Höhe eines durch den Zubau dezentraler Einspeisungen möglicherweise erforderlichen Netzausbaus sowohl die räumliche Verteilung der Einspeisungen in den betroffenen Netzbe-reichen als auch der Umfang der dezentralen Erzeugungen insgesamt und der jeweiligen Last relevant sind.

Turkish Electricity Sector

Turkish Electricity Sector

Turkish electricity demand grew by 9% YoY in 2011 reaching 229TWh. Despite buoyant demand, lower than expected electricity prices held back any improvement in operating margins for independent power producers (IPPs) in 2011. In addition, the steep depreciation of the TL caused huge FX losses in a sector laden with heavy debts. Thus, IPPs suffered heavy losses, diminishing the high hopes for the sector at the beginning of 2011.
