FAE-INFORSE Event, 15 December, 2010 - Slovakia






Energy and Climate - FAE- INFORSE-Europe Seminar

Organised by Foundation for Alternative Energy (FAE) at Commenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Seminar was aimed at to present EU energy policies and outcomes of the UN Climate Change conference (COP 16) in Cancun. Energy and climate change issues were discussed from the perspective of their impact on Slovak legislation, economy and energy sector. The audience consisted from University staff, students and NGOs.

There were two presentations made by Mr. Emil Bedi (INFORSE-Europe Coordinator):

1. Climate Change - Outcomes of UN conference (COP 16) and the future of Kyoto Protocol. Presentation of EU and Slovak positions and financial mechanisms (emission trading) and their relevance after the year 2012.

2. Renewable Energy Sources. Recent EU and energy policies were presented with the INFORSE Europe positions . Impacts of EU energy policies on Slovak energy sector and economy together with financial support for the RE (EU Structural funds, feed-in tariffs) were at the focus of the discussion. The project "Bioenergia Bystricko", which serves as the successful case of implementation of EU Structural Funds in Slovakia was also highlighted.

One of the outcomes of the seminar was the agreement that the Ph.D. students of the Department of Landscape Ecology of Commenius University will join INFORSE-Europe / FAE projects next year.
