BENELUX countries will present the latest green technologies at Astana Expo 2017. As expected, European Commissioner for Energy Maros Sefcovic and Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel will take part in the international specialized exhibition in Astana. According to former EU energy commissioner Andris Piebalgs, Astana EXPO 2017 will showcase new opportunities for the development of alternative energy sources.
ANDRIS PIEBALGS, COMMISSIONER FOR ENERGY, EUROPEAN COMMISSION:
- I think that the exhibition is held in the time when new types of energy resources attract more investment. Therefore, this exhibition will let politicians understand that things they thought are impossible exist today. New technologies exist already; we only need to find mechanisms to introduce them in real life.
Slovakia will present its advanced developments and start-up projects in the sphere of alternative energy at Astana EXPO 2017. The country will demonstrate autonomous smart houses to expo visitors. Slovakia will pay particular attention to water energy. It will showcase the cold fusion phenomenon, which, as scientists believe, is the future energy. National Day of Slovakia is going to be very entertaining. According to Slovakian Expo Commissioner Patricia Zhachikova, Expo visitors will be able to enjoy a performance of folk ensembles, traditional Slovak music and dishes.
PATRICIA ZHACHIKOVA, SLOVAKIAN EXPO COMMISSIONER:
- The main exhibit of our pavilion will be ECO-capsule. This is a house or a caravan so to say, which uses solar energy, wind power and everything that is connected with using the rain. The largest Slovak ensemble which is called "Luchnitsa" will show the traditional culture: songs, dances from different regions of Slovakia. We also want to show you modern culture.
