The South-East European Congress on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the Eco Forum for Waste Management & Recycling Save the Planet are great opportunities for the leading players in the sectors to bring modern technologies, products and services to the Region, to find new partners and clients. The events organized by Via Expo will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, in the period 13-15 April 2011.
EE & Renewable Financing, Energy Efficiency and Decentralized Energy, RES Electricity, Smart Grid Platform, Waste management and Recycling are the topics to be discussed at the three-day forums. For the fist time there will be held “Solar Business Forum for Balkans”. It will show the opportunities for investment and production of photovoltaic devices and plants in the region of South-East Europe.
Special accent will be put on the Waste-to-Energy session with 15 speakers from 10 countries: Germany, Austria, Romania, Slovenia, Japan, Canada, USA, UK, Serbia and Switzerland.
The presentaton of Barbel Birnstengel, Prognos AG, Germany, will focus on the potential of the waste it has a high material or energy value and thus could contribute to resource, environment and climate protection. How to produce useful fuels and electricity from biomass and waste resources? These questions will answer Kunio Yoshikawa from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, which is developing and commercializing total technologies to convert unutilized resources such as solid wastes and biomass into high value added energy resources.
John P. Foden president of Canadian Energy-from-Waste Coalition will speak how to get approved of w2e projects, how to manage and communicate with local communities and interest groups.
The parallel exhibitions will display state-of the-art products, solutions and services in the fields of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, waste management and recycling.
About 4 months before the events 2/3 of the area is already booked for Spanish National Participation and group participation from Austria, China, Finland, Poland, Slovenia, and the USA.
Among the exhibitors are well known names: Enercon, Global Wind Power, Fronius, Hyundai, voestalpine Krems, Phono Technologies Switzerland, Franki Grundbau, Eurosol, Siemens, Solea, PowerWind and many others.

Dresden/Germany, 31 August 2009 – ITI GmbH, international leader in virtual system engineering, today announces its debut in Great Britain. The foundation of ITI Northern Europe Limited enables the company to extend its presence on international markets and to provide its customers in Northern Europe with class-leading levels of service support, sales and customer-orientation. ITI also announces the expansion of its Headquarters in Dresden/Germany; software development will be continuously strengthened. Counter the general economic trend, the company performed well in the first half of the year and is financially set for further expansion with sales running stable and an increasing global demand for ITI simulation solutions.
For many years with more than 25 selected distributors on three continents, ITI has been cooperating with a successful network of stand-alone, state-of-the-art partners dedicated to the sales and service of SimulationX, the standard multi-domain software for system simulation. The establishment of the UK facility in Milton Keynes is a debut in ITI history thus tightening its international market position. The new subsidiary has already started operation and acts independently in local sales, marketing, and human resources development. Simulation solutions are provided and supported for SimulationX customers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland. Chris Litchfield becomes Business and Sales Manager for Northern Europe and will be supported by Emmanuel Domingues, Technical Manager. Each of them brings more than eight years experience in delivering system simulation solutions to a wide range of industries.
We want to advance our commitment to ITI customers in Northern Europe by providing the world’s highest level of satisfaction in service support and sales of SimulationX thus implementing true innovations together. Our aim is to become a key player on the European CAE market within the next two years, said Jens O. Schindler, ITI Managing Director, about the aims of the new facility. â€œIn the past years ITI strengthened its position as a leader in virtual system engineering and became an internationally-demanded engineering partner, adds Dr. Andreas Uhlig, ITI Managing Director, and further explains: â€œWith highly-qualified people and financial strength we are ready for new investments to expand our business. The establishment of the subsidiary is a milestone in ITI’s company history.
For more than 18 years ITI has been one of the internationally leading companies for the virtual system engineering. The software SimulationX is applied by engineers and scientists at more than 600 well-known companies such as Audi, BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen, Continental, Schaeffler, Siemens, Demag, Husky, Nikon, Mitsubishi and Liebherr. SimulationX is also widely used in academics and research world-wide. Main fields of application are power engineering, Power transmission, fluid power, mechanical engineering, power generation and automotive. Apart from this ITI supports its clients in the field of research and development of high-technology with engineering and consulting services. In the field of real-time and HiL test-system applications ITI provides turnkey projects and references for various companies including CNH, Putzmeister or Hoerbiger. Further information on www.iti.de.
SimulationX – The Driving Force in System Simulation determines the level of modeling, simulating and optimizing complex technical systems. The software models the interaction of components from a multitude of domains including their mutual interaction and feedback on one platform. This significantly distinguishes SimulationX from any other kind of CAE software (FEM, CFD, MBS). SimulationX is the standard in software for evaluation of the interaction of all components in technical systems. It is the universal CAE tool for modeling, simulating and analyzing physical effects â€“ with ready-to-use model libraries for 1D mechanics, 3D multi-body systems, power transmission, hydraulics, pneumatics, thermodynamics, electrics, electrical drives, magnetic as well as controls â€“ post-processing included. SimulationX fully supports Modelica® language and offers a wide range of open, comprehensive CAx-interfaces. Further information on www.simulationx.com.
