October 21, 2013, 09:53 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Solar energy keeps a leading position in the renewable energy mix as a reliable, inexhaustible and environmentally friendly source. In terms of the electricity production coming from new generators, PV ranked second with almost 30% after wind energy in 2012. The world's cumulative capacity is capable of producing as much annual electrical energy as 16 coal power plants or nuclear reactors of 1 GW each and every year these installations save more than 53 million tons of CO2 according to the EPIA Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics 2013-2017.
Intensive evolution of solar technologies determinate the emergence of the 'prosumers' = (producer + consumer). The consumers will become energy producers which will optimize their direct consumption ratio and the cost of electricity transmission. Experts identify this market segment as the future of photovoltaics.
South-Europe has a very good solar potential and contribute significantly to the global energy system transformation.
The SEE Solar Exhibition is one of the prominent b2b events is the Region devoted to solar PV and thermal technologies. It will meet manufacturers, installers, investors, designers, consultants and end-users from South-East Europe, Central and Western Europe. In line with recent trends, the 2014 edition will put the focus on the building-integrated photovoltaics and autonomous solar systems in industrial and residential buildings, energy storage products, as well as innovative home appliances, the application of which willl enhance the competitiveness of the regional economy.
