Several countries from around the world gather their fellow exhibitors at European Utility Week to showcase solutions under one flag, presenting their local projects and exchanging information on the latest case studies being developed in their region!
Together with a trade organisation, an association or other national/governmental organisations, European Utility Week organises different country pavilions, where companies can build a stronger presence on the exhibition floor.
This year the Basque Country, Canada, The Czech Republic, Korea and The Netherlands have already confirmed their participation. With more national pavilions expected to feature at this year's event in Vienna, we will see more international exhibitors collectively showcasing their solutions than ever before.

Italian Pavilion - meeting with stakeholders...
Italian Pavilion - meeting with stakeholders
Rose Cavanagh, Account Director, EUW
I recently spent a few days in my home country, Italy, the country that is currently rolling out its second-generation electronic meters and one of the world's largest producers of renewable energy. I had really interesting meetings with ITA – the Italian Trade Agency, Elettricità Futura – the main association of the Italian electricity sector, and with Italian utility Edison, discussing the possibilities of an Italian Pavilion and Italian presence during European Utility Week 2018, in Vienna.
Italy is one of the countries most committed to energy efficiency and renewables: it is the 8th largest economy in the world, the 3rd largest in the Eurozone and will soon be the 3rd largest EU member state after the UK's exit, and it has been engaged for a long time in the energy sector, already recording excellent results, with the energy intensity of our country being 18% lower than the average of European countries.
Italy was among the first to adopt measures on energy efficiency and deployment of renewable energy systems, which helped the country to reach the EU's energy targets for 2020 6 years in advance – impressive!
Italy’s National Energy Strategy involves ambitious and complex targets, such as:
- reducing final energy consumption by a total of 10 Mtoe by 2030;
- reaching a 28% share of renewables in total energy consumption by 2030 and a 55% share of renewables in electricity consumption by 2030;
- strengthening supply security; narrowing the energy price gap; furthering sustainable public mobility and eco-friendly fuels;
- phasing out the use of coal in electricity generation by 2025.
Such achievements, business models, innovation and best practice are the perfect example of what to showcase at European Utility Week 2018!
And who, other than ITA - the Italian Trade Agency, could help Italian companies promote their expertise and innovation internationally? During our meeting in Rome, we discussed the plans for an Italian Pavilion financed by the Italian Trade Agency. The initiative will be launched in cooperation with Federazione ANIE, the Association of Electrical Engineering and Electronic companies, and it is set to be a promising partnership with excellent results on the exhibition floor!
Italian companies are welcome to join the Pavilion!
Together with EUW’s Utility & Partner Liaison, Rogier Kuttschreuter, we also paid a visit to Elettricità Futura in Milan. Elettricità Futura consists of more than 700 operators, holding more than 76,000 MW of installed and conventional electric power and about 1,150,000 km of lines. Over 70% of electricity consumed in Italy is assured by companies associated with Elettricità Futura.
Elettricità Futura’s members are committed to helping create the basis for an efficient electricity market and to meet the challenges of the future and we are looking forward to welcoming them in Vienna to meet our visitors.
Last but not least, we had a fruitful meeting with Edison, who is among the top energy companies in Italy and in Europe. Edison’s vision and mission are in line with the changes taking place in the energy sector - centred on sustainability, innovation and the customer.
All in all, the trip to Italy brought us some great insights in the challenges Italy faces, as well as great examples of some of the Italian stakeholders committed to contribute to a more sustainable future and to guide citizens towards responsible energy usage patterns. We are really excited about bringing all of them together in Vienna to showcase the best of what Italy is doing to everyone that visits EUW!

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
