The recent nuclear disasterÂ in Japan and turmoil in the Middle East has opened questions about theÂ sustainability of existing energy growth and development, encouraged debates onÂ the justification of the use of nuclear energy and the existing safety standards,Â and public opinion polls also confirmed the sensitivity of the citizensÂ regarding the use of nuclear energy.
Professional circles areÂ also divided. While some do not find alternatives to growing energy needs byÂ claiming that nuclear energy is safe, others attacking it fiercely arguing forÂ turning renewable energy sources like solar and wind.
This, as well as lastÂ year’s environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, raises the question of theÂ use of new technologies in the exploitation of traditional energy sources.
Therefore, we ask ourselvesÂ whether we have “energy” for growth? How we respond to challenges inÂ the energy sector, and how we take advantage of new technologies? Can they be aÂ driver of economic growth and development with the new investments that areÂ prepared in this sector? What is its potential? Are the existing transportationÂ systems and safety equipment at a satisfactory level? What are theÂ opportunities to open new corridors?
These and many other issuesÂ will be discussed at the 3rd Energy Arena 2011 – The most important regionalÂ conference on energy sector organized by Infoarena Group in cooperation withÂ the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and will be heldÂ on June 14 2011 in Zagreb’s Hotel Regent Esplanade.
The conference will host a number of prominentÂ businessmenÂ andÂ experts inÂ the energyÂ sector, such as Zsuzsanne Hargitai, EBRD DirectorÂ forÂ Croatia, Zoltan Ãldott, President of INA,Â KirillÂ Kravchenko, Director GeneralÂ ofÂ GazpromÂ Neft–NIS, Serbia, Branko Zajec, directorÂ ofÂ KoncarÂ – Renewable, Mark Anthony, CEO of Janaf, who, along withÂ otherÂ participantsÂ on the status
andÂ trendsÂ inÂ the energyÂ sectorÂ to discussÂ theÂ next severalÂ thematicÂ units such as:
- TheÂ impact of Japan’s nuclear crisis and wars in the Arab energy sector;
- NewÂ technologies in the energy sector;
- InvestmentsÂ in the energy sector;
- TransportationÂ systems / corridors and security of supply.
The issue of investments inÂ the energy sector in Croatia is certainly important if one takes into accountÂ the recent Government investment plan according to which, in 18 projects, ofÂ which half are even referring to HEP, plans to invest 3.85 billion Euros.
The investment areÂ predicted in four power plants, hydroelectric power, building a terminal forÂ liquefied natural gas in underground storage for gas, the completion of theÂ modernization of the refinery, in connecting the gas system of the Croatian andÂ Hungarian, and a final decision on the project Adria Society, and also mentionsÂ the possibility of building a nuclear power plant . Since the carriers of theÂ project is the State and public enterprises, one of the most important issuesÂ to be addressed by the Conference are the sources and models of financing theseÂ energy projects.
Experts believe that theseÂ investments are economically important for recovery from the economic crisis,Â since the link to job creation, growth and development of new industries, theÂ adoption of new knowledge in theory and practice. Do we have the
“energy” for such growth? Find out at the Regional conference onÂ energy sector – 3rd Energy Arena 2011!
