Infocast's Carbon Reduction Project Development and Finance Forum to Provide "How-To" for GHG Reduction Projects

Growing Carbon Markets Creating Unparalleled Opportunities

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 25, 2007) - In response to 200% growth in carbon voluntary markets in the US between 2005 and 2006, Infocast has organized "Carbon Reduction Project Development and Finance" to be held in Houston November 14th - 16th 2007.

Carbon markets are projected to continue on a similar trajectory, in part as a reaction to the recent House passages of HR 3221 -- New Direction for Energy Independence, National Security and Consumer Protection Act and H.R. 2776 -- Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2007. This legislation, which represents major milestones on the path to a carbon regime, underscores the need to originate carbon credits via many types of projects, which creates huge opportunities for project developers. However, not all GHG reduction projects are created -- and certified -- equally, and the differences can produce an order of magnitude variance in the potential revenue flow from carbon reduction streams.

"Carbon Reduction Project Development & Finance" assembles the most experienced carbon market players, developers and financiers from throughout the world to share their insights into navigating through the complexities of developing, certifying and financing profitable GHG emission reduction projects. It will bring together leading carbon funds, carbon originators and aggregators, energy companies, clean tech companies, private equity and project developers to explore how to take advantage of carbon revenue flows in methane capture, renewable energy, geologic capture and other carbon reduction projects in both overseas and the nascent US markets.

The conference also features a pre-conference workshop on Carbon Markets and Monetizing Carbon Offsets, which will cover the Carbon value chain and the interplay between REC's, offsets and deal structures.
