Dozens of experts from all over the world are in Tenerife for a 2-day conference which aims to explore market opportunities for renewable energies.

The conference was opened formally on Wednesday by the vice-president of the European Parliament and the president of the Tenerife Cabildo, which is co-hosting the event.

Delegates from countries as far apart as The Netherlands and New Zealand devoted the day to discussing the use of solar and win energy to mitigate climate change and combat the current oil price crisis.

Tenerife presented an innovative project to tap the island’s geothermal heat reserves thousands of metres underground to provide electricity for the island.
