Clean Energy Ministerial Releases CEM4 Roundtables Report

Washington, DC, July 2, 2013 -- The Clean Energy

Ministerial (CEM) has released a report summarizing key outcomes from the
six public-private roundtables that were held as part of the fourth Clean
Energy Ministerial (CEM4) in Delhi this past April.

The report, Public-Private Roundtables at the Fourth Clean Energy Ministerial, captures
the ideas and recommendations of the government and private sector leaders
who participated in the discussions.

The CEM recognizes the critical role the private sector can play in
accelerating the transition to a global clean energy economy. The
roundtables provide an opportunity for the CEM participating energy
ministers and other high-level officials to engage in an open discussion
with the private sector, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and other
experts on particularly topical clean energy issues.

This year, six topic areas were covered, including reducing soft costs for
solar photovoltaics, enhancing energy management systems, financing
renewables, increasing the deployment of clean vehicles, exploring viable
business models for mini-grids, and advancing power markets in emerging
economies.

"Such events provide an excellent international platform for government
representatives, industry, and other participating stakeholders to better
understand each other's needs, to learn from each other, and to identify new
ideas," said roundtable participant Rolf Stromberger with BMW of North
America.

The roundtables focused on generating concrete and actionable
recommendations and informed policy makers and private sector participants
on key issues.

The Clean Energy Ministerial is a high-level global forum to share best
practices and promote policies and programs that encourage and facilitate
the transition to a global clean energy economy.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
