The Assembly of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina said it will organize an international conference on renewable energy sources in March next year. The event will gather officials from the region and energy experts from whole Europe, the Serbian institution said on its website and added partners from the Assembly of European Regions will participate.
The agreement on hosting was reached in Winchester, England, after a proposition by Milivoj Vrebalov, deputy speaker of the provincial parliament. At the international organization’s gathering he told the energy committee the conference Geothermal Energy Days 2015, organized in Vojvodina’s capital of Novi Sad in May, aims to become a regular event. Only 1.7% of geothermal capacity is being used in the province, and its officials want to reveal more on other renewable energy sources as well, Vrebalov said. „I remind you that this year, after the conference was held, French ESG group from Strasbourg decided to invest in geothermal energy exploitation in the vicinity of Kikinda,” he underscored.
