This year’s POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe conference and exhibition in Amsterdam will focus on innovative technology developments in response to the energy industry’s renewable evolution. Key themes that will be discussed include commercial technology solutions, integrated power and the sustainable energy economy.
The combined POWER-GEN and Renewable Energy World events from Europe’s largest annual conference-led exhibition, and have been connecting power generation professionals for the past 23 years, promoting knowledge-sharing, excellence and business opportunities across the full spectrum of the power generation sector.
There is an air of excitement and a little trepidation surrounding this coming POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe. The energy industry is changing and it is the recognition of the many facets of these changes that has become the theme of the event this year. The power industry’s history is steeped in engineering expertise, which has always risen to past challenges. Now, this experience of the past must inspire the next generation of innovators to create the solutions that will maintain Europe’s leading position in the provision of reliable, sustainable and universal electricity supply.
The 2015 conference programme offers content relevant to the issues vexing the industry today, offering new strategic and technical solutions to the key issues of workable policy and regulation, decarbonisation, flexible generation and cleaner operating coal plants among others. There are new sessions under the heading of Urban Energy Integration, reflecting a range of topics around decentralised energy and the exciting activities of municipalities in the energy sphere. Further sessions within the conference matrix look at grid support and renewables integration, achieving greater operation excellence and efficiency together with utility-scale renewable policy, finance and project development.
Among the many highlights of this year’s event will be the opening Keynote Session headlined by the Executive Director of the International Energy Agency, Maria van der Hoeven. International broadcaster Stephen Sackur also returns to moderate the Joint Plenary Panel Discussion among power sector experts. The panelists will share their vision as to how the market is likely to develop and bring some clarity to a sometimes opaque future for certain types of power generation. The debate will address the changing roles of centralised power, growth of localised generation, and the opportunities that will arise from this.
Outside of the conference arena, the RAI exhibition halls will be full of power engineering products and services companies, creating the ideal marketplace to discover new technologies and plant operation equipment. Every day at POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe will offer amazing networking opportunities both on the show floor and in the surrounding conference.
The exhibitor list and conference programme will be regularly updated on the event websites, offering more information about technical tours, the new Projects of the Year Awards, European Confidence Index and the Best Paper Awards.
POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe opens its doors wide to power industry experts who want to embrace change, pursue excellence and whose entrepreneurial drive and technical innovation will ensure that the emerging opportunities in the energy industry are developed to the full. As Europe moves closer to its vision of an Energy Union, with closer co-operation and stronger interconnections, the value of an annual meeting place for practitioners to voice their opinions and introduce a practical perspective into the debate, is ever more important.
