ICCI 2017 Positions Itself As The Leading International Energy Event In Eurasia

Sektorel Fuarcilik, the organiser of ICCI which is the largest energy conference and exhibition held annually in Istanbul and PennWell International, a diversified global media and conferences and exhibitions company, have carried out an important partnership for the energy industry. PennWell International, a subsidiary of U.S.-based PennWell Corporation, purchased the 50% ownership share of Sektorel Fuarcilik/ICCI from Hannover Fairs Turkey, a subsidiary of German trade show organiser Deutsche Messe. As a result of this cooperation, ICCI 2017 will open its gates as the joint organisation of two global exhibitor companies.

As the most important gathering of the energy sector, ICCI 2017 – the 23rd International Energy & Environment Fair and Conference is preparing to host the leaders of the industry between May 03-05, 2017 at Istanbul Fair Center. Supported by Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and The Energy Market Regulatory Authority, ICCI will bring together the companies from various product groups such as Renewable Energy, Cogeneration, Electricity Generation and Trade, Electric Transmission Systems, Maintenance, Repair and Services for Power Plants, Environmental Technologies, Energy Efficiency, Logistics and IT Technologies.  Moreover, at the conferences organised with the fair, various topics such as Energy Policies, Regulations and Strategies, Energy Efficiency, Energy Technologies, Products and Services will be featured. In addition, this year’s Energy Awards, which are known as the Oscars of Energy will meet their owners during the ceremony organised concurrently with ICCI Exhibition.

Last April, ICCI once more proved that it is a leading destination for all stakeholders of the industry. In all the 2016 event hosted 285 exhibitors from 24 countries. Among them, Austria, China, Czech Republic, Denmark participated with their pavilions by the financial support of their governments. Significant companies of the sector such as ABB, Borusan, Enercon, GE, Goldwind, Mitsubishi, Nordex, Senvion, Siemens, Toshiba, Zorlu Enerji introduced their innovations during the three days.  ICCI also provided exhibitors with a highly effective meeting point for accessing markets in Turkey and the neighbouring countries as well.

Throughout the fair, 14.044 professional visitors came from Europe, North Africa, Asia and the Gulf States besides Turkey.  In the scope of Trade Mission Program, ICCI hosted companies, association representatives and editors from Germany, Uzbekistan, UK and Iran. In addition to them, visitors from Greece, Sudan, UAE, Gana, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Italy showed great interest in the fair. Leading industrial enterprises, especially from Iran, used the trade fair in order to initiate new business and conclude sales deals. In addition to the showcased products and services, concurrent conferences drew intense interest from industry professionals and leaders and during the ICCI Conference, more than 200 international speakers were hosted in a total of 35 sessions. The calibre, geographical positioning, reach and quantity of visitors and variety of platforms makes ICCI the leading international energy event in Eurasia.

Growth Of Renewables In Peru As Enel Opens Largest Wind Farm In Country

Enel is now Peru’s leading renewable energy generator with around 1.1 GW of installed capacity following the commissioning of Wayra I which, with more than 132 MW, is now Peru’s largest wind farm. Built in approximately a year and comprising 42 wind turbines of 3 MW over each, it’s expected to produce 600 GWh per year; enough to avoid the annual emission of over 285,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere. The energy generated by the wind farm is being delivered to the Peruvian transmission grid (SEIN) through the Poroma substation. The project is supported by a 20-year energy supply contract with Peru’s Ministry of Energy and Mines.

Battery Boom: Wind And Solar Can Generate Half Of Worldwide Electricity By 2050

Coal is to shrink to just 11% of global electricity generation by mid-century, from 38% now, as costs shift heavily in favour of wind, solar and batteries. Wind and solar are set to surge to almost “50 by 50” – 50% of world generation by 2050 due to reductions in cost. “Cheap battery storage means that it becomes increasingly possible to finesse the delivery of electricity from wind and solar so that these technologies can help meet demand even when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining. The result will be renewables eating up more and more of the existing market for coal, gas and nuclear.”

Mission E: Porsche’s First Fully Electric Sports Car Is Named Taycan

Porsche have announced that series production of its first purely electric vehicle is set to begin next year. The “Mission E” concept study, the name currently used to describe Porsche’s complete electric offering, will be known as the Taycan. Two permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of over 600 hp (440 kW) accelerate the electric sports car to 100 km/h in well under 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds. This performance is in addition to a continuous power level that is unprecedented among electric vehicles.
