POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe are currently accepting speaker abstracts for next year’s co-located conferences, being held at the Messe Wien in Vienna, Austria from 4-6 June 2013. Power industry professionals are invited to share their vision, knowledge and experience of how Europe’s long-term power supplies will be maintained with industry peers, technical and strategic decision makers and strategists. With 243 speakers and over 1,000 delegates anticipated to attend, both conferences offer a fantastic opportunity to network with leading organisations and high-level influencers, as well as giving you a chance to represent your company at the most prestigious event in the power generation industry. Each conference is broken into technical and strategic tracks covering a diverse range of topics including: hydro marine and turbo power; regulation; small scale renewable procurement and contracting; geothermal energy; coal fired power plants; and gas fired power technology operation, maintenance, refurbishment and optimisation. Issues specific to the Central and Eastern European power sector are expected to be particularly pertinent at next year’s event, as well as topics such as energy storage and integration, and matters relating to the integration of renewable energy into the power system. A full break down of suggested conference topics and themes for each of the conference can be found here:
Each conference has an independent Advisory Board responsible for selecting successful papers. The Board represents a wide cross-section of the industry and includes experienced professionals from leading European utility companies, equipment suppliers, manufacturers, service providers, associations and consultancies. The deadline for submitting papers is 21 September 2012. Abstracts can be submitted via the event websites:
We look forward to hearing from you!
Now in its third year, Nuclear Power Europe is set to feature one of its most comprehensive conference programmes yet. With the focus being ‘serving the nuclear sector’, leading industry experts will address the fundamental changes underway across the industry and look to bridge the gap between the past, present and future of nuclear energy in Europe.
An agenda comprising strategic, technical, keynote and plenary sessions will address the benefits of nuclear power within a balanced energy mix. Thought-provoking panel discussions on ‘Investing in Nuclear’ and ‘Update and Implications of the European Stress Tests’ will be co -chaired by Ulla Pettersson of e for energy Management Consulting and Stefan Hatt, ABB Ltd. Sessions respectively. Additional highlights include ‘Moving on from Fukushima’, ‘Challenges & Opportunities in Decommissioning’ and ‘Overcoming Challenges for New Build’, all of which are anticipated to result in lively delegate discussions.
With the nuclear industry undergoing major change following Fukushima, conference sessions, particularly those shaped around looking ahead – such as ‘Integrating New NPP Technologies’ and ‘Solutions for Upgrading & Refurbishment – will offer delegates the chance to appreciate the bigger picture and truly engage with the direction in which the industry is heading.

The integration of renewable energy into the conventional power grid is a challenge that has fast taken centre stage across Europe and will this year shape the conference programme at Renewable Energy World Europe.
Industry experts will be offered the opportunity to discuss the challenges of integration in a series of conference sessions anticipated to spark compelling debate on how to best service the evolving energy sector.
The three-day event will deliver an unequalled programme of strategic, technical, keynote and plenary sessions across two conference tracks – integration and renewable. The Integration track will feature sessions on ‘Pathways to Integration’, ‘Storage’, ‘Smart Grids’ and ‘Infrastructure Management & Grid Development’. On the Renewable track, ‘The Race for Solar Success’, ‘Renewable Energy Policy & Finance’, ‘Roads to a Wind Powered Europe’, ‘Water Power’ and ‘Bioenergies’ will be hot button issues topping the agenda.
Germany has been a global leader in renewable energy for two decades, making this year’s key theme of ‘Integrating the renewables sector’ particularly resonant.

With POWER-GEN Europe just a few months away, details of the conference programme have finally been announced, with this year’s central theme being ‘Integrating the power sector’.
Convergence between conventional power and fast-growing renewable generation is well underway in Europe, sparking a compelling cross-pollination of ideas and best practice on how best to service the evolving energy sector. Many of these will be examined in detail during an unequalled programme of strategic, technical, keynote and plenary sessions delivered by industry experts across seven individual tracks.
Day one of the conference programme will focus on ‘Strategies for the European power industry’ and feature seminars on the new build strategies being adopted across Europe. Throughout the course of the conference delegates will also have the chance to attend sessions addressing ‘Gas fired power technology’, ‘Reducing the carbon footprint of fossil power generation’ and the ‘Pathways to integration’.
The hot button issues of carbon capture and storage (CCS), smart grids, biomass and plant optimisation will also be prominent items on the agenda.

As in previous years, POWER-GEN Europe 2012 will also feature a conference running alongside the exhibition floor, with in-depth sessions covering a range of topics related to the European power sector. There will be several topics ‘tracks’, with each one including several sessions around a common theme. The latest track will look at the issue of integration, and was decided at the Advisory Board earlier in November. The session programme for this will be announced in the first quarter of next year, and you can expect to see sessions presented on flexible generation, electricity storage, smart grids and infrastructure management and grid development
Alongside this new track with be six parallel tracks covering strategy and business issues facing power producers and carbon reduction technologies, including several session focusing on the technology options for carbon capture and storage (CCS) and its cost implications. Optimisation and flexibility are two of the main themes that will be covered in the gas fired generation track and biomass will be a central topic in the track dealing with other combustion technologies.
The remaining tracks will present a full programme of presentations in the areas of power plant control and automation as well as operations and maintenance. Delegates can expect to hear from all the major equipment supplies as well as a host of specialist engineering supply and service experts.
For those wanting to learn more about renewable technologies there will be sessions devoted to specific technologies as well as the finance and investment issues. A special session looking at how the municipal power companies are approaching renewables in Germany will be one of the highlights. The nuclear programme will include an examination of the results and implications of the European stress tests on nuclear plants, the opportunities for integration, and the issue of decommissioning – an increasingly relevant subject for Germany.
Delegates to all three conferences can attend any sessions including those covering renewable energy and the sessions devoted to nuclear power.
With POWER-GEN Europe having served the information and networking needs of the power sector for 20 years and now co-located with Renewable Energy World Europe, this combined conference and exhibition is perfectly placed to provide a platform for market integration of these complementary sectors.
