Austria responds to the green technology and know-how demand in SE Europe

Austria responds to the green technology and know-how demand in SE Europe

The 2014 edition of the SEE Forum & Exhibitions on Waste Management, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, Smart Cities and Elevators has successfully ended. It has proved its role as a great networking and new product exposure platform. We are pleased to share with you the results in the Post Event Report and to announce the new date: March 11-13, 2015.

One of the most outlined accents was the Austrian Pavilion that was realized for 5th year in a row. Austria was a supporting event partner. The country has a very export-oriented eco-industry sector – its export quota is about 65%. Its expansion of trade and investment in the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe is a key element of the national economy. The waste technology, water treatment and energy efficiency remain promising business areas.  The national eco industry generates annual revenues of EUR 10.6 billion.

Let’s mention some facts: about one third of the Austria's energy consumption is covered by the national energy industry. Up to 70% of the energy comes from renewable sources. Austrian companies have more than 30 years experience and know-how in the field of waste management. Its development is due to the high awareness amoung population, strict legal requirements and the good use of financing tools.

Gerhard Reiweger, the Ambassador of Austria in Bulgaria, empathized that the strong presence of the Austrian companies shows the great potential Bulgaria offers to foreign companies.

‘Also in 2015 Austria will act as official partner of the SEE Eco Forum and Exhibitions and plans to organize a group stand.’ says Dr. Michael Angerer, Commercial Counselor in the Austrian Embassy in Bulgaria.

The present press release is devoted to the 17 companies participated in the Austrian Group Stand situated on 200 m2.

57% from them will join again the event in 2015 according to the survey.  88% increase in the number of participating companies compared to 2013.

Establishing new contacts with local companies and also with local municipalities were among the priority reasons for participation in 2014.

Best practices in waste-to energy projects, renewables in district heating, energy management and environmental management systems were presented by the Austrian experts during the concurrent Forum.

Have a nice reading!
