Europe’s biggest power industry event is just a mere two months away and while it promises to present a packed conference programme, keynote speeches and plenary sessions, it can be difficult to keep up with all that POWER-GEN Europe, Nuclear Power Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe have to offer.
Sponsored by Hitachi, TODAY is the official daily newspaper of this year’s event which will be held at Fiera Milano City in Milan, from 7-9 June. TODAY will report on the latest news, hot topics and new product launches from all three conference shows and will feature the daily power news from around the world.
To ensure that show attendees enjoy their time in the beautiful city of Milan, TODAY will also feature a restaurant and nightlife guide, cultural listings, maps and other tasty tidbits.
You can pick up your copy of TODAY at Fiera Milano and it will also be delivered directly to the event headquarters hotel.

This year’s POWER-GEN Europe event promises to be the biggest and best yet, providing attendees with the chance to meet exhibitors and visitors from all over Europe. The venue, Fiera Milano City in Milan, has nearly sold out, with hundreds of companies set to exhibit at the event, representing the power industry in Europe and further afield. The venue will also host the POWER-GEN Europe 2011 Conference, providing a forum for in-depth panel discussions and presentations on a variety of sector-specific topics, as well as two additional co-located events, Renewable Energy World Europe and Nuclear Power Europe.
Both the conference and the show will be focussing on “Addressing the Hot Button Issues” in the European energy sector, and this topic will be tackled throughout the activities and discussions at the show. As well as the keynote speech, there will also be a joint plenary panel discussion which all attendees can watch, with the opportunity to ask questions of the panellists. Visitors to POWER-GEN Europe and its co-located events will have the opportunity to learn more about cutting edge developments in technology and business solutions through the various exhibitor stands at the exhibition. There will also be ample opportunity for networking among peers and vendors, both at the conference and the show itself.
The venue for the show, Fiera Milano City, is located in the heart of Milan, providing visitors with a great choice of hotels and restaurants, as well as excellent transport links. Visitors can also take organised tours of local energy projects, providing a firsthand experience of the work of the Italian power industry.
We look forward to welcoming you to POWER-GEN Europe 2011, and if you’d like more information on any aspect of the event, please visit the website at http://www.powergeneurope.com/. The site also allows you to register your attendance at the show, as well as view the initial speaker schedule and an exhibitor list.
At POWER-GEN Europe 2010, we conducted a poll of 60 power equipment and service providers and their customers and found that the majority (75 per cent) see a strengthening in market demand next year, despite the uncertainty surrounding international climate change regulation. However, only a tiny minority of respondents – just 1.5 per cent – thought the market would weaken.
The survey also found that EU targets to reduce carbon emissions and increase power efficiency, each by 20 per cent by 2020, are expected to drive the market. However, it seemed that opinion remains divided regarding the impact of climate change regulation, and that of the EC’s aim to create a common European electricity market. A third of respondents said that the uncertainty surrounding international climate change regulation was having a negative impact on the European power industry, whilst just under a third believed that a common European electricity market would benefit their business.
The results show that there is a lot of optimism about how Europe’s energy sector will develop next year, tempered by a fair amount of uncertainty. Despite the negative impact of the economic downturn, the existing power infrastructure has need for significant new investment and the optimism expressed by our survey participants ensured the atmosphere at last year’s POWER-GEN Europe event was electric.
The figures have been announced ahead of POWER-GEN Europe 2011, which is being held at Fiera Milano City in Milan, from 7-9 June. Visitors to the event will also have access to Europe’s leading renewable and nuclear energy exhibitions, Renewable Energy World Europe 2011, and Nuclear Power Europe 2011. In addition, all three events will be complemented by a comprehensive conference programme, providing participants with a deeper understanding of a wide range of industry issues.
