Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg and secretary of state for energy and climate change Ed Davey are getting behind the UK's renewable energy sector at the British Business Embassy on Energy at Lancaster House today (August 6th).
It will be the first of two such events which are taking place as part of a programme of 18 summits designed to utilise the international attention Britain is enjoying during the Olympics by boosting trade and investment.
Mr Clegg was keen to underscore that the coalition supports green investment - despite simmering tensions in the government over wind farms.
"This coalition government is unreservedly committed to helping our low carbon sector thrive. We seek nothing less than a clean, green, low carbon economy," he said.
His colleague Mr Davey highlighted the various industries that the coalition is keen to support.
"Whether it's our surging renewables sector or North Sea oil and gas exploration, new nuclear power or carbon capture and storage, there has never been a more exciting time to be in the UK energy sector," he added.
Other speakers scheduled to appear at the event include Steve Holliday, chief executive of the National Grid.
