The Avenston Group has been participating in the SEF and the CISOLAR Sustainable Energy Exhibition for Central and Eastern Europe for many years. Despite the transformation of the industry, the global COVID-19 pandemic and other factors that hindered the development of solar energy in 2020, the Forum and the Exhibition became important events of the second half of the year.
Thanks to the efforts of all participants, the industry has received a positive impetus to develop in new conditions, transform and move forward, despite all the challenges.
It has been more than twelve years since the launch of SEF, and more than 15 years since the first business conference on renewable energy was held.
During this time, renewable energy has become a full-fledged industry, growing almost from scratch. Growth rates, investment, the number of households and entrepreneurs who have joined the industry seem unrealistic.
This year, the combined forum and exhibition SEF&CISOLAR-2020 took place offline in compliance with all security measures in quarantine and in parallel six virtual events took place: online forum, virtual exhibition SEF&CISOLAR, two international online conferences, strategic online session and online seminar for visitors of the exhibition.
Avenston staff also took an active part in all of these events. On the first day of the Forum, we took part in one of the sessions and made a report on the prospects for the development of certain areas of solar energy. The Avenston report traditionally ended with a call to join forces and join the developed solar energy industry in Ukraine.
