Sweden: The Solar Future Nordics (01 Apr 2020)

NordenBladet – The Solar Future Nordics is the first regional conference fully dedicated to solar energy* in the Nordic region and it features a unique set-up, in which the regional authorities, as well as both local and international associations, institutions, and private entities, meet up, get market updates, debate, and learn. Attending the event is a vital enabler to be part of the future development of the Nordics’ solar energy future.

When: 01 Apr 2020; 09:00 AM-06:00 PM (expected)
Where: Stockholm Waterfront Conference Centre, Stockholm, Sweden (Nils Ericsons Plan 4 111 64 Stockholm
Participants (Estimated Count):
100 – 500 Delegates
10 – 50 Exhibitors
Organizer: Solarplaza International BV, Netherlands


* Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants and artificial photosynthesis.

It is an important source of renewable energy and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on how they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic systems, concentrated solar power and solar water heating to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light-dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

The large magnitude of solar energy available makes it a highly appealing source of electricity. The United Nations Development Programme in its 2000 World Energy Assessment found that the annual potential of solar energy was 1,575–49,837 exajoules (EJ). This is several times larger than the total world energy consumption, which was 559.8 EJ in 2012.

In 2011, the International Energy Agency said that “the development of affordable, inexhaustible and clean solar energy technologies will have huge longer-term benefits. It will increase countries’ energy security through reliance on an indigenous, inexhaustible and mostly import-independent resource, enhance sustainability, reduce pollution, lower the costs of mitigating global warming, and keep fossil fuel prices lower than otherwise. These advantages are global. Hence the additional costs of the incentives for early deployment should be considered learning investments; they must be wisely spent and need to be widely shared”.
