Feedback of participants and visitors

Now that 800 MW have been successfully introduced, traditional generating companies show interest in the projects carried out in wholesale and retail markets. They understand these technologies develop much faster than traditional generation, and their prospects for development, including those in Russia, are great ones. Now holding of congresses and trade shows devoted to renewable energy seems quite reasonable. It is necessary to go into technologies. Both technology companies and expert organisations, which provide related consulting services, are present here at RENWEX. It shows that the interest in renewable energy is growing.

Director, Russia Renewable Energy Development Association

We are at the forefront of the RES market. We should explain to retail customers and B2B customers that our products will help them save money, make their production more efficient, and reduce the cost of products. We have learned about the experience of foreign companies where such trade shows are very popular. Using this trade show we want to explain to our potential customers the advantages of our products, what makes us different from our competitors who are also here. We understood at once that we need a large stand at this exhibition to showcase all our products. Not only to showcase them but also hold workshops. For this purpose we arranged a special area, chose materials, and invited colleagues. I t drew much attention. In about five years this trade show will be very large. I have seen the same trends at other trade shows. The first edition of the RENWEX exhibition was interesting not only for Russian companies but also for foreign ones.

Earlier we attended the trade shows dedicated to renewable energy as visitors. But today we can showcase what we have done in this field. This year, for the first time, we have made the decision to participate in RENWEX as an exhibitor. Here we can see a great interest in our stand. At this trade show we hope to generate new business leads and establish contacts with manufacturers and suppliers of equipment, share best practices with colleagues, and get a complete idea of where the renewable energy industry is moving in Russia, whats the news, and what to expect. The trade show provides a unique opportunity for face-to-face networking. It saves much time especially at the stage of decision making concerning, for example, construction of the plant and choice of equipment. At the trade show everything is concentrated in a single place, and one should not spend time on long journeys.

Mikhail Molchanov
Director General, Solar Systems

The trade show is timely. We are making a new product and the aim is to show it and interest potential buyers. The results from participation in the trade show are very good. Today is the third day of the trade show and we have got a package of preliminary orders. Then we will go to potential customers and prepare for installation of new wind generators. They have been developed for small-scale generation and operation in the northern areas. Without doubt, this trade show is effective for us. It was very comfortable. We have been attended by many visitors from our target audience prepared, competent and asking specific questions. When a market appears, then new trade shows appear. The fact that RENWEX is the first one is just great.
