Press release no. 30/12

After the success of the first editions, Artenergy’s important fair-conference will debut in South America: the fair will be called Enersolar+ Brasil and will take place in July 2012 at San Paolo

Enersolar+, the important event dedicated to photovoltaic and thermal solar energy, inverters and other renewable energy, will, in 2012, debut in Brazil. After the incredible success of the first two editions held in Milan, Enersolar+ Brasil will be organized thanks to the joint venture between Artenergy Publishing - leading Italian cross media company in the renewable energies and high-tech sectors - and Fiera Milano, which recently acquired the majority of shares of Cipa, the most important fair organization company in the South American country.

Brazil, with more than 190 million inhabitants and an area double the size of Europe, is, and has been for the past ten years, undergoing strong growth, and is looking to become the sixth worldwide economic power. The country has decided to concentrate mostly on renewable sources - first and foremost photovoltaics - and, in the next few years, will host two important international events: the 2014 edition of the World Cup and the Olympics of 2016. All characteristics that have attracted the attention of important international investors.

"After the success of EnerSolar+ in Milan, we have decided to launch an event dedicated to renewable energy in Brazil, a strongly developing country which offers considerable possibilities of investment," says Marco Pinetti, president of Artenergy Publishing. "The initiative, in collaboration with Fiera Milano, will be an important opportunity for all professionals of the sector interested in the important market of South America, which, in the near future, will undergo even more development."

"Enersolar+ is an extremely important event, which was highly successful at its Milanese editions," explains Marco Serioli, director of Fiera Milano. "And this is why we decided, with Artenergy Publishing, to take the fair to Brazil, a country offering important opportunities. Moreover, next year, Fiera Milano has seven events scheduled for BRIC countries: Brazil, Russia, India and China". Enersolar+ Brasil will take place from 11 to 13 July 2012 at San Paolo.
