The International Selected Committee has chosen 17 best energy-generating projects out of 136 submitted to be showcased in the Energy Best Practices Area (eBPa) Pavilion at the very center of the International Exhibition EXPO-2017, reports Astana Times.
All in all, more than 25 countries participated in the selection. “At the moment, we have almost finished selecting the best projects. But this is only the first stage. Now engineers and other experts will transform the projects to exhibits,” Vicente Loscertales, the Chairman of the International Selection Committee, said at a press conference in Astana.
“I am very impressed with the construction of EXPO because almost all the work coming to an end. The participants of the thematic pavilions will start to fill their pavilions with exhibits this October. Those objects that I saw at the construction site of EXPO are modern and unique. I would like to note the progress that has been made in terms of operating activities, cultural programmes and the promotion of EXPO at both the international and national level. We are very satisfied with the state of preparation for the EXPO,” Mr Loscertales stated.
The eBPa is closely associated with the theme of the EXPO – Future Energy. It is, therefore, supposed to become a symbolic center of the exhibition dedicated to showcase best technologies, proposals and strategies in different areas of sustainable energy: energy production, storage and use, combating climate change, and providing access to energy in developing countries.
Moreover, eBPa is not only about showing best achievements in the field of energy, but also exchanging views and experiences in the promotion of these technologies, strategies and projects which will become the thematic value of EXPO-2017.
EXPO-2017 will be held for the first time in Kazakhstan from June 10 to September 10, 2017.
