If you haven’t visited Louisville, Ky., lately, you might not recognize it. The entire downtown is nearing the completion of a $1 billion revitalization. On virtually every corner there’s something new popping up—new Bourbon distilleries, new Southern-inspired culinary destinations and new places to explore.
12th South-East European Forum & Exhibition on Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy
The opportunities and perspectives of the SE European market The security of energy supply, fast climate changes, strong economic and social benefits have prompted many countries in South-East Europe to diversify their energy mix and and to reduce the import of fossil fuels, keeping money circulation within the regional economy. The Region has a great potential for utilization of renewables. Well-developed agriculture and forestry industries, availability of organic waste are a prerequisite for biogas, methane and biomass production. The decentralized solar electricity generation for heating and cooling is encouraging, too. A very perspective market segment is the realization of waste-to-energy projects through public private partnerships. Countries with a sea outlet have the opportunity to drive forward the 'blue energy' sector and only 40% of the hydro energy sources is developed in SE Europe. The energy systems transformation will need a new grid that combines capacity for high volume transfers and distribute energy with smart power management. Investments for improvement of energy efficiency in private and public buildings as well as in industry are coming. The CO2 reduction in transport sector is the other priority issue and in the Region solutions for replacement of the fossil fuels with alternative low carbon fuels are sought. The countries are developing strategies for zero energy buildings. In terms of e-mobility, the South-East Europe is at its early stage and governments are going to stimulate this emerging industry.
