Press release no. 62/12

Great success for the new event dedicated to solar energy, which enables to invest in Brazil, a fast developing country in which renewable energies will have an ever more important role.

The first edition of EnerSolar+ Brasil, the international fair for photovoltaic, thermal and CSP industry in Brazil, which will take place from 11 to 13 July 2012 in San Paolo, is already completely sold out. More than 150 companies from ten countries (Brazil and Italy, of course, as well as United States, Germany, Spain, China, Switzerland, Portugal, Luxembourg and Cyprus) will take part in the event - which occupies an area of 4,000 square metres.

This success demonstrates the importance of this project that offers the opportunity of investing in a fast growing country, where the development potential of photovoltaics is enormous.

Moreover, Brazilian energy policies are contributing in creating the best base for the sector. the Ministry of Energy and the Environment, for example, has announced a series of actions to promote the growth of the country’s energy resources and, in this programme, renewable energies will have a fundamental role.

Kandeh Yumkella, general director of Unido (United Nations Industrial Development Organization), said that Brazil is an example to follow with regards to the policies undertaken for the development of renewable energies.

This context can, in prospective, favour the success of EnerSolar+ Brasil, an event which, if we consider the results already obtained for this first edition, seems destine to grow at the same rate as this continuously developing market.

EnerSolar+ Brasil 2012 also includes an interesting programme of conferences, seminars and workshop, with qualified speakers from the associative, industrial and academic worlds.

The event is organized by Artenergy Publishing - the leading cross media company in Italy in the renewable energies sector, and by Fiera Milano, present in the South American country through Cipa, a leading organizer of professional fairs.

Greenergy Expo Brasil 2012, the international fair dedicated to biogas, cogeneration, geothermal energy, hydro-electric energy, biofuels, waste treatment, creating important synergies, will be held concurrently with EnerSolar+ Brasil.
