Renewable Energy World Europe 2012

Renewable Energy World Europe, which is the leading conference and exhibition on renewable energy in Europe, has announced that the central theme for their 2012 exhibition and conference will be ‘integrating the power sector’. This years event is being held at the KölnMesse in cologne from 12-14 June.

The keynote speaker for the opening session has been confirmed as the Dr Michael Suess; who is the CEO at Siemens energy sector and also a member of the managing board at Siemens AG.  The event is once again being co-located with Power-Gen Europe.

With Europe’s future electricity supply facing a major integration challenge – namely the convergence of conventional power and fast-growing renewable generation – flexible solutions are increasingly being brought to market. This raises the question of how to meet the demands of this evolving energy sector. Renewable Energy World Europe will bring together leading figures in the industry to address this compelling issue.

“We are delighted to be holding the 2012 conference in Germany,” said David Appleyard, conference director at Renewable Energy World Europe. “Nowhere is our key theme of ‘integrating the power sector’ more compelling, given Germany’s decision to phase out all nuclear power by 2022. We can’t wait to build on the success of our 2011 exhibition, which together with POWER-GEN attracted 15,000 attendees and a conference featuring 70 sessions and 250 speakers presenting over the course of the three days.”

At Renewable Energy World Europe, industry professionals can appreciate the big picture and truly engage with the direction that the industry is heading. The event provides an unequalled programme of strategic, technical, keynote and plenary sessions, along with over 600 exhibitors showcasing their products and services. A full conference programme includes sessions on flexible generation, energy storage, smart grids and infrastructure management among the other key issues explored.
