COGEN Europe is pleased to announce its upcoming Annual Conference & Dinner 2012.
How Europe’s electricity grid can integrate solar photovoltaics – EPIA presents new report
The European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) will host a half-day conference in Brussels to present the main findings of the new report entitled “Connecting the Sun”. This report analyses future scenarios looking at how Europe’s electricity grid can integrate solar photovoltaics - which, under certain conditions, could cover up to 25% of EU’s electricity demands by 2030. Policy recommendations are also part of the report to be presented on 17 October. EPIA’s study was conducted in consultation with external analysts and experts from system operators from around Europe.
Wednesday 17th October, 9:00 – 14:00.
Solvay Library, Brussels.

Securing Europe‘s Raw Material Supply in the Context of Resource Efficiency and EU Industry Policy
There is no energy- and resource efficiency, no climate protection, no future technologies for our modern
world without the use of non-ferrous metals.
As a result of the Fukushima nuclear disaster Germany decided to phase out nuclear power by 2022. 8 out of 17 nuclear power stations have already been shut down permanently. Renewable energies will be expanded massively and will bear the brunt of future power generation.
