ICE Agency - in collaboration with ANIMA Confindustria Meccanica Varia, the Ministry of the Environment and Protection of the Territory and the Sea and UNIDO ITPO - promotes the Italian Participation to the IX ^ Edition of the International Beirut Energy Forum - IBEF 2018, scheduled in Beirut , at Le Royal Hotel, from 26 to 28 September 2018.
IBEF from 2010 represents a reference event in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern area for the sustainable energy sector, favoring partnerships, regional cooperation initiatives and international collaboration.
"Digitalization in Sustainable Energy: Expanding the Investment Frontiers" is the focus for the 2018 edition, focusing on how today digitalization influences energy supply and demand in changing consumption patterns, in new ways of optimizing resources, in the greater use of industrial platforms and inter-sectoral partnerships.
The opportunity to participate in the initiative is reflected in the Lebanese economic scenario: the country suffers in fact an energy deficit estimated at about 1 / 4 of total demand and from the 2010 the Authorities are committed to supporting and strengthening all public, private and individual initiatives to promote and enhance the use of renewable energies as envisaged by the I ^ Action Plan for National Energy Efficiency for Lebanon (NEEAP 2011-2015), renewed with a II ^ NEEAP (2016-2020) in progress .
The proposal provides for the participation of companies with a free accreditation to the work of the Forum and the possibility to take advantage of the institutional ICE Agency stand, where to display company catalogs and carry out business meetings that the ICE Agency of Beirut will organize. The participation fee is equal to 350 € plus VAT and the deadline for membership is set at 27 July 2018.
