This year Astana hosts the international exposition – EXPO 2017. The theme of the EXPO is Future Energy. The objective is to spark a global debate between countries, non-governmental organisations, companies and the general public on the crucial question: ”how do we ensure safe and sustainable access to energy for all, while reducing CO2 emissions?”
Earlier this month ILF Consulting Engineers actively participated in two events, one of which was the “Kazakhstani-Austrian Sustainable Technology Day” and the other was the “50 Years of ILF” celebration held in the Austrian pavilion of the EXPO. During the Technology Day, ILF’s experts on Hydropower Engineering (John Thene, ILF Austria) and Smart Cities (Enrico Casaretti, ILF Abu Dhabi) presented their thoughts on the current situation in the renewable energy sector and shared insights on future developments. During the sessions government representatives, investors, engineers, and equipment suppliers from Kazakhstan and Austria had the opportunity to share knowledge and experience, make new connections, and meet new colleagues in a B2B format.
