The joint opening keynote session will be delivered by Gianfilippo Mancini, director of the Generation and Energy Management & Market divisions of Enel, Italy’s largest power company, and Giuseppe Zampini, Chief Executive Officer of Ansaldo Energia, Italy’s leading producer of thermoelectric power plants.
Through the course of their speech, both delegates will give their thoughts around the prospects and direction of Europe’s electricity industry. Mr Mancini will give delegates the chance to learn about the factors influencing decision-making within the industry, as it seeks to meet the dual goals of combating climate change whilst providing a secure and affordable power supply. Furthermore, Mr Zampini will be providing insight into the role that nuclear power will play in the future energy mix as the European energy industry reaches a crucial crossroads in its development.
“We are delighted that Mr Mancini and Mr Zampini have confirmed as keynote speakers at this year’s POWER-GEN Europe show. The keynote speech will set the tone for the event, and provide everyone with a perfect introduction to what promises to be the highlight of the European power industry’s calendar, ” states Nigel Blackaby, conference director at POWER-GEN Europe 2011. “To have speakers of this calibre making the keynote address at the show sets the bar extremely high. For those with an interest in the European power industry, their thoughts and opinions are guaranteed to hit at the heart of today’s most prominent energy issues, and are not to be missed.”
