Renewable energy development in the CIS will be at a completely new level in autumn, 2011
Renewable energy development in the CIS countries will be at a completely new level on realization and scale of investment projects. Such an opinion was expressed by the speakers of the 3rd International Forum on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Ukraine REF-2011, which will take place in Kyiv on 17-18th of October, 2011.
- (1888PressRelease) August 29, 2011 - In particular, established experts suppose that Ukraine's experience on the project development, in the sphere of renewable energy, is very valuable and significant for other countries, and that REF-2011 Forum - is the key event in the sector, among the Eastern European countries.
As the member of committee of directors of «Nitol Group» (Russia, production of polysilicon, solar power engineering) Andrei Kotenko pointed out, «In the recent years we have been witnessing a dynamic development of the solar power engineering market in Ukraine. At the same time, investments are being directed at the generation of source of raw material for the sector, production of single and polycrystal silicon, as well as directly into the building of solar energy stations». This fact makes 3rd International Forum on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Ukraine interesting both for potential investors and specialists of solar energy, and for representatives of legal and executive branches of power, from a position of familiarizing with the experience of realization of assistance programs for solar power engineering in Ukraine. I'm convinced that Forum will be used as a platform for demonstration of the current status of the industry development in the CIS and as a place of fruitful business contacts».
Along with a dynamic development of renewable energy in the CIS countries, and Ukraine in particular, companies of the industry also expect the formation of the market of accompanying services.
«After the adoption of the legislation on a green tariff in 2009, the real boom of renewable projects has started in Ukraine. We can see first big projects being implemented this year. We are convinced, that a devopment boom in the sector will start next year, and it's necessary to get ready for big size building-erection works», - noted Vadim Novikov, director of the Prenecon Ukraine company (wind-power engineering).
In his opinion, customers as well as contractors, are not ready for a boom in the industry, taking place in Ukraine today, however, the reach experience of the Western Europe, which will be represented at the REF-2011, will help to eliminate those «diseases of the developing market».
The importance of effective industry communications is also emphasized by the head of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund of Armenia,Tamara Babyan.
«International Forum, REF-2011 stresses the growth of strategic sector of renewable sources of energy and energy efficiency and contributes to the development of international cooperation, including the interaction between researchers, professionals of the sector, investors and governments, for a further growth in the dynamic, global market economy. Forum will grant a unique opportunity for establishing of new business contacts, by creating a platform for an exchange of information and experience, and also to define new projects and investment possibilities. I'm sure that all participants will gain new knowledge and information for their appropriate sphere of activities».
3rd International Forum on renewable energy REF-2011 will be held on 17-18th of October, 2011 in Kyiv (Intercontinental Hotel). Organizer of the Forum is the Center of Renewable Energy Fuel Alternative, co-organizer - Association of the Participants of Alternative Fuel and Energy Market of Ukraine, under auspices of the European Small Hydro Energy Association (ESHA), Solar Energy Association (BSW-Solar) etc. Last year, there were more than 280 delegates from 30 countries at the REF-2010 conference. The partners of the REF-2011 Forum are following: KPMG (brand sponsor), Beiten Burkhardt (legal partner), Activ Solar (sponsor in the solar energy section), Prenecon (sponsor of the wind energy section), Legal Group "Dominion" (sponsor of the energy efficiency section)
