Major Players in the Carbon Markets to Meet in May at North America's First Carbon Finance and Investment Summit

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 13, 2007 -- A major industry building event, the Carbon Finance and Investment Summit, produced by Infocast, will be held in New York City May 21 to 23, 2007.

Investment banks, private equity funds, hedge funds, carbon funds, project developers and lenders, clean tech companies, energy companies, and major corporations will gather at the Summit to forge the crucial business relationships needed to take advantage of the growing opportunities in the world, retail, and project carbon markets.

Each group of market players will take the stage to share their business plans for carbon projects and investments and to identify the type of business relationships they are seeking to establish in order to further their plans. They will offer insights into:

The type of opportunities they are pursuing

The strategies they are adopting

The drivers that will determine which type of deals they are willing to make

The factors that will influence the level of their transactions in the coming year

The Summit will take place in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision regarding EPA regulation of carbon emissions, which makes it a near-certainty that regional and state-level cap-and-trade systems will be extended to the national level in the not-too-distant future. This is sure to create a high-charged atmosphere at the Summit where the newly emerging carbon industry will accelerate its efforts to respond to the rapid market developments and the significant business opportunities offered throughout the world in greenhouse gas reduction projects, aggregator markets, clean technology markets, and carbon offset and allowance trading.
