LONDON, April 25, 2011 - India's answer to its energy deficit issue has been to implement
attractive incentives for clean energy generation. Euromoney Energy Events'
4th Renewable Energy Finance Forum - India (www.reff-india.com) looks
to match energy utilities, developers, and manufacturers with the financial
community in order to forge a new renewable energy identity. On the 24th &
25th of May 2011 at Le Meridien in New Delhi, renewable energy experts will
explore the means in meeting this development goal, including how to fill the
funding gap.

Discussing topics around policy implementation, domestic and
international lending strategies, investment opportunities, risks, renewable
technologies, and carbon finance; an array of information about the current
framework and future opportunities will be presented to a domestic and
international delegation.

An in-depth examination of the policy in place will be discussed by
Deepak Gupta, Secretary of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, India;
how this policy influences financiers appetite will be responded to by Anita
, Director of Infrastructure at the International Finance Corporation;
and the variations in policy at national and state level which will be
addressed by a senior representative at the Indian Renewable Energy
Development Agency.

India provides an ideal landscape for renewable energy expansion, where
international expertise can partner with local business resources. An example
of an international company marking its place in the Indian renewable energy
scene will come from Anil Srivastava, CEO of AREVA Renewables.

Favourable tariffs are opening eyes and the risk and return profile for
deploying capital in renewable energy in India is appealing. The financial
community is eager to learn more about where to place its money. This
discussion will be led by a mix of leading financiers and investors including
SBI Capital Markets, ICICI Bank, Industrial Development Bank of India, HSBC
Bank, Credit Suisse Securities, Yes Bank, and Morgan Stanley.

Following the government's introduction of an attractive solar incentive,
the appetite for investment in this sector has significantly soared. There
will be both developers and manufacturers involved in this discussion on how
to best utilise available capital for solar development including Theirry
, Chairman from Solaire Direct; Inderpreet Wadhwa, CEO from Azure
Power; and Srini Nagabhirava, Managing Director of the Asia Pacific from AES
