EnergyWeek expected to be as busy as before the pandemic

EnergyWeek, the top energy event, taking place next week from the 21st to the 25th of March at Vaasa City Hall, only opened its registration on the 4th of February, but enrolment has got off to a great start – despite the exceptional global situation. Once again, thousands of participants from dozens of countries are expected to attend. Exhibitor stands for all four days of the event are almost fully booked.

During the five-day event, top energy professionals will be presented with the most fascinating new cases and innovations and will have the opportunity to hear the latest news from the energy sector. EnergyWeek is the most important networking and sales event in the Nordic countries for local, national and international visitors.

“EnergyWeek was last held in 2019 and featured 21 different events or seminars. This year, EnergyWeek has been extended by one day and will offer a total of 30 different events. There will also be many international companies exhibiting their solutions and innovations, and the seminars will feature several international speakers. It’s well worth checking out the programme and registering in advance,” says EnergyVaasa’s Communications & Brand Manager Kristoffer Jansson.

“Of course, safety is an aspect we will be paying particular attention to. We strongly recommend wearing a mask, plus there will be plenty of hand sanitiser available. If a participant has even minor symptoms, we must ask them to please stay at home,” Jansson continues.

New themes every day

EnergyWeek 2022 will focus on five different themes, one for each day: energy and the environment, wind and renewable energy, smart energy solutions, gas, and the new theme of energy storage, which will include presentations about battery technologies and companies belonging to the battery value chain looking to establish themselves in the region, as well as hydrogen, synthetic fuels, heat and other topics related to energy storage.

The programme also includes events on topics such as the circular economy, smart cities of the future, space technology and electric aircraft. Match Making sessions will take place from Wednesday to Friday. The exhibition events are open on four days, each day with a different theme. There will be different exhibitors presenting their solutions, depending on the theme of the day.

EnergyWeek kicks off on Monday with the traditional Energy and Environment Seminar, which, unlike the rest of the week, is an influencer seminar in Finnish. The seminar’s theme this year is the green transition and electrification. The second part of the seminar will focus on the Nordic battery belt and will include a panel discussion at the end of the event.

You can get a head start on EnergyWeek at the Green Car event in the Vaasa marketplace on Saturday the 19th of March from 11:00 to 15:00. This event will be held in Finnish.

“Climate issues, electrification and energy storage will almost certainly be a hotter topic than ever this year, although energy efficiency and sustainability have always been the common thread that runs through EnergyWeek,” says Jansson.

The Energy and Innovation Awards will be presented on Wednesday. Since EnergyWeek 2020 was cancelled at the last minute due to COVID-19, the winners of 2020, who missed the awards ceremony then, will be awarded this year alongside this year’s winners.
