On November 10‑12, 2020 the International trade fair of low‑voltage electrical engineering and electronics "Electro Install ‑ 2020" was successfully held in Kyiv. The event is dedicated to the most capacious and popular segment of the electrical engineering market, whose products are widely used in all areas of production, economic and household activities.
"Electro Install ‑ 2020" was attended by companies that have the ability to respond to today's challenges during a time of crisis, continue to strengthen their market position and develop competitive advantages. The participants' stands displayed circuit breakers, residual‑current devices, electrical protective equipment, switches, measurement instruments, voltage and current stabilizers and converters, cable and wire products, cable support systems, busbars, assembly and wiring products, electronic and automation components and systems.
International trade fairs "Power Engineering for Industry", "EcoEnergy Expo", "OilGasExpo", "Mining & Minerals Expo" took place co‑located with "Electro Install". The events were held within the framework of the International Energy Business Forum "5E". Expectedly, given the quarantine restrictions, the format of the power and electrical engineering events changed. The general situation affected the work of sectoral markets and consequently the number of participants and visitors. This year 114 companies at the total exhibition area of over 7,200 sq.m took part in the events.
On November 10, the opening ceremony of the XVIII International Energy Business Forum "5E" and the International Trade Fairs "Power Engineering for Industry", "Electro Install", "EcoEnergy Expo", "OilGasExpo", "Mining & Minerals Expo" was attended by:
- State Secretary of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine Volodymyr Bondarenko,
- Acting Head of the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine Kostiantyn Hura,
- President of the International Council on Large Electric Systems CIGRE in Ukraine Oleksandr Svetelik,
- General Director of the International Exhibition Center Anatoliy Tkachenko,
- General Director of Voltline company / ABB in Ukraine Oleksii Vargatiuk,
- Deputy Director of the Industry Department of Schneider Electric Ukraine Serhiy Bazhenov.
State Secretary of the Ministry of Energy Volodymyr Bondarenko conveyed congratulations to the participants and guests of the event from Acting Minister of Energy Olga Buslavets and stressed the importance of the Forum for launching and continuing business partnerships to attract investment in the energy sector. Volodymyr Bondarenko also stressed: "The Ministry has been working on one of the national strategic directions - integration into the European energy system ENTSO‑E, we have been working on the concept of implementation of Smart Grids. We have been developing transparent and clear rules for every participant, investor in the energy market so that, after emerging from the crisis, we can breathe fresh air and know that we have a future ‑ the future of the energy‑independent state of Ukraine".
During his speech on the occasion of the events opening Acting Head of the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine Kostiantyn Hura noted: "Green Course mobilizes the state's efforts to develop low‑carbon energy industry, energy efficiency and at the same time a competitive economy. IFC estimates that the clean energy and energy efficiency sector can attract up to € 70 billion investments in 2030. This is a huge amount of money for economic growth". Acting Head of the State Agency for Energy Efficiency also reminded that about € 7 billion have been attracted in these areas over the past 6 years.
Oleksandr Svetelik, President of the International Council on Large Electric Systems CIGRE in Ukraine, said: "This Forum is a basic platform for the introduction of new technologies, for consideration of a new concept of energy sector development in our country… We hope that the next year this situation will stabilize and we shall be able to hold a premier large‑scale event with a meeting of all power engineers, with the invitation of our esteemed colleagues from other countries".
The trade fair "Electro Install" is held within one cluster with the exhibition projects "Power Engineering for Industry", "EcoEnergy Expo". The synergy of sectoral measures forms a holistic view of the market situation in power and electrical engineering and identifies technological trends for all parts of the energy chain ‑ from energy sources to electricity consumption.
The feedback from exhibitors and visitors testifies that the exhibition project by IEC comprised of "Electro Install", "Power Engineering for Industry", "EcoEnergy Expo" trade fairs has become the main annual industry event in the field of power and electrical engineering, energy efficiency.
