Dan Kammen presentation at Australia's Ecogen conference were reported by the Sydney Morning Herald:


"[...] World Bank renewable energy specialist Dan Kammen told the Ecogen conference there were major economic opportunities for developed economies to partner with China in building and selling renewable energy technology.

Mr Kammen said there had been too much focus on the “intense battle” being waged publicly by skeptics of human-caused climate change.

Even without helping to combat climate change, he said promoting renewable energy with policies including feed-in tariffs would increase energy security, business profitability and promote jobs growth.

Organisers said the conference, which ends tomorrow, was being held at a “critical time” for the clean energy industry."
