Renewable Energy World Europe 2012 to Address Integration of Conventional Power and Renewable Generation

Renewable Energy World Europe, Europe’s leading renewable energy conference and exhibition has announced ‘Integrating the power sector’ as the central theme for the 2012 exhibition and conference taking place 12-14 June at the KolnMesse, Cologne. In addition, Dr Michael Suess, chief executive of Siemens Energy Sector and member of the managing board of Siemens, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for the opening session. The event will once again be 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,” says 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 a comprehensive 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.
