Dear Readers,
The new European Commission’s President team of Jean-Claude Juncker has been announced before some days.
An important and good news is that energy is at the top of the EU agenda. The President has ambitions to reform and reorganise Europe’s energy policy in a resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate change policy.
The EU has a leading position in developing renewable energies, but to maintain this position it needs an ambitious, stable and predictable regulatory framework. Last week the European Council calls for 30% Renewables target by 2030 instead the 27%.
Autumn is also a season when the events on energy issues run across, presenting new technologies and linking thousands of industry stakeholders.
Although the 11th edition of Energy Efficiency and Renewables Exhibition and Forum for South-East Europe will be held in 2015, we are pleased to introduce the latest news about its preparation.
Have a nice reading,
Via Expo Team

The Chamber of Kavala is a public law, legal entity that was originally founded in 1918.  It has over 11.000 members including small and medium sized manufacturing companies, commercial enterprises, handicrafts companies, large industries, as well as professionals and service-oriented companies.  Tourism and export companies represent a large percentage of our membership.

The Chamber is an important support mechanism for trade, industry and the professions in its area of jurisdiction and oftentimes it uses its stakeholder influence in the government decision-making process on matters relevant to the business world. In most cases the Chamber collaborates with local or regional authorities, but oftentimes interventions are coordinated with national authorities.

Yet another important function assumed by the Chamber, and one of particular relevance to the business world, is its consultative and information services provided to small and medium sized enterprises. Examples of this are the supply of information on subsidies, grants, development laws, EU legislation, and even information on export markets or possible new sources of supply for raw materials. Also, information is supplied on company law in other countries and on international trade rules and regulations. As of January 2008, the Chamber of Kavala is a member of the EU sponsored Enterprise Europe Network supporting SME competitiveness and innovation.
