Key Energy explains changes in energy
rom centralized production to distributed generation. New technologies for efficiency. Plus eco-diplomacy after Copenhagen. This is the start of the scientific program of the fourth edition of the Expo on Sustainable Energy and Mobility.
The appointment's at Rimini Fiera, from 3rd to 6th November.
– "We are going through a phase of very rapid evolution of the energy scenarios, destined to enable new players to emerge and to question the dominant concept of centralized energy production. And, in Rimini, it will be possible to take stock of development under way in Italy." This is how Gianni Silvestrini, the scientific director of Key Energy, sees one of the key issues of the fourth edition of the international sustainable energy and mobility expo, which will be held from Wednesday 3rd to Saturday 6th November 2010 at Rimini Fiera.
This year, the Key Energy conferences are to be held in a context of rapid intense growth of the markets of renewable sources and efficiency, but at the same time of tension for the uncertainty on the regulation front, partially slackened by the recent approval of the new "Conto Energia" feed-in incentive system and guidelines for authorization of new plants. The numerous appointments include those of the Kyoto Club, which will coordinate a debate intended to sum up the situation of eco-diplomacy on climatic changes after the partial failure of Copenhagen, and a month from the United Nations' appointment in Cancun. There will also be discussions on photovoltaic and wind energy, two technologies in which Italy is among the world's top as far as number of installations is concerned. The ANEV trade association of wind energy manufacturers will be sure to critically analyze the changes in the green certificate sector. On the other hand, an in-depth focus organized by the FIRE (Italian Federation for Rational use of Energy) will regard white certificates, an incentive facility that has enabled to save 5 million tons equivalent of oil in four years and which, with all probability, will be boosted in the near future. There will also be an in-depth discussion of the action plan for renewable sources that re-launches the role of Italy’s regional governments: they will discuss precisely at Key Energy the hypotheses of dividing the 2020 objectives.
Key Energy will be held once again this year along with the Ecomondo (14th International trade fair on material & energy recovery & sustainable development) and Cooperambiente (3rd edition of the trade fair for the cooperative supply of energy and environment services, in collaboration with LegaCoop), ensuring the sectors' professionals an unbeatable showcase.
From 3rd to 6th November 2010, Rimini Fiera will aim at improving the figures of an expo event constantly on the move, which last year chalked up 63,332 visitors, 5,066 of whom were foreign, 110,000 m2 of expo, 1,500 exhibiting firms, 240 scientific reports, 650 speakers and 443 accredited journalists.
