European Solar Thermal Energy Conference

Post Time:Oct 21,2008Classify:Industry NewsView:430

In 2009, estec ("European Solar Thermal Energy Conference"), the largest conference of its kind in Europe, will once again take place in Munich, in cooperation with Intersolar. estec is organized every two years by the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF) and opens its doors on May 25 and 26, 2009, at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich, two days before Intersolar 2009.

The organizer's decision to continue its collaboration with Intersolar, now the world's largest solar power trade show, sends out a clear message. "Intersolar has become the most important platform for the European Solar Industry," says Uwe Trenkner, Secretary General of ESTIF.

Next year, the organizers of Intersolar are expecting up to 1,300 exhibiting companies from all sectors of the solar industry and over 60,000 visitors, following what was already a significant increase in the number of exhibitors this year. The number of visitors to estec2009 is also expected to rise correspondingly, with the organizers estimating that around 600 experts and decision-makers from the international solar thermal industry will attend. "Intersolar is now an established event for anyone working within the solar thermal sector. We are very pleased that estec, the most significant conference in the solar thermal sector, will once again take place in conjunction with Intersolar in 2009," says Horst Dufner, Intersolar project manager.
