The European Union and its member states are putting the final touches to their strategies for Rio+20. The Rio+20 Conference is expected to provide a comprehensive framework for the future of international cooperation for sustainable development. What role is there for renewable energy? How can state actors create an environment in which local entrepreneurs can thrive and provide the services and goods requested by people in the developing world?
