      Greentech Media Adds to Intersolar North America Conference
   Online-media leader hosts two full-day seminars at first U.S.-based global solar exhibition

San Francisco, CA – May 13, 2008 — Solar Promotion International GmbH and Greentech Media are pleased to announce their
partnership with the presentation of two full-day seminars during Intersolar North America, July 15-17, 2008. The seminars,
Concentrating Solar Technologies and Markets and Solar Finance, will bring high-caliber market research and insight to the
conference program, focusing on two of the most important topics facing the solar industry today: concentrating solar technologies
and the financing of solar installations.

Solar Promotion International GmbH has an eight-year legacy producing the world’s largest solar technology exhibition: Intersolar
Europe. To further add to the value of their inaugural event in the United States, Solar Promotion International GmbH has tapped
Greentech Media to offer a forum for presenting the latest data and discussion on topics of interest to this international audience. The
Greentech Media seminars, developed in partnership with the Prometheus Institute for Sustainable Development, have established
themselves as essential "days of data" in the solar market, where industry leaders and decision makers gather and share detailed
market analysis and hear from the world's experts on solar economics, technology and policy.

“Having Greentech Media onboard with their two, market knowledge-filled seminars will add tremendous value to Intersolar
attendees and the industry, overall. It continues to emphasize Intersolar's importance as the core of information for the solar industry,
as well as an opportunity to meet and conduct business with the international solar community,” said Solar Promotion International's
chief executive, Markus Elsässer.

Concentrating Solar Technologies and Markets will provide the most comprehensive analysis of the rapidly emerging concentrating
solar thermal and PV markets. Drawing on recent research conducted by the Prometheus Institute and Greentech Media, this seminar
takes a top-to-bottom approach to revealing the economics, technology, and market opportunity for both concentrating solar thermal
(CST) and concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) technologies. Leading market analysts and industry experts will cover topics ranging
from CSP financial analysis and projections to a global assessment of current and planned capacity, important distinctions among CSP
technologies, and market forecasts to 2020.

Solar Finance will bring together top market analysts and leaders in the renewable energy finance industry to provide the audience
with detailed data and analysis of the complete range of financing solutions impacting the global solar market. Experts from every
facet of the solar finance market will present more than perspectives and opinions - each will share market data, forecasts, and long-
term analysis.

"We're delighted to be part of Intersolar North America," said Scott Clavenna, President and CEO of Greentech Media. "They are
bringing a world-class solar exhibition and conference to San Francisco which gives us the perfect avenue to deliver our data-intensive
seminars to a truly international and focused audience."
