23 June 2009

Speaking at the Renewable Energy Finance Forum in New York City, IEA Executive Director, Mr. Nobuo Tanaka, said that renewable energy sources have a key role to play with respect to both energy security and climate change, but that both challenges are being overshadowed by the current economic crisis. He added that governments must provide positive signals to investors by combining short-term recovery measures with a long-term policy perspective.
