Alstom to present its broad clean power solutions at the World Energy Congress 2010


Alstom, global leader in the supply of equipment and services for power generation, will participate in the World Energy Congress (WEC) held this year in Montreal, Canada, between 12 and 16 September 2010. Alstom, one of the main sponsors of the event, will be represented by its Chairman and CEO, Patrick Kron, and several other key speakers who will delve into current energy challenges.

Held every three years, the WEC, organised by the World Energy Council, a non-profit energy organisation with Member Committees in 94 Countries, aims at promoting “sustainable supply and use of energy for greatest benefit of all people”. Held in 2007 in Rome, Italy, the WEC succeeded in launching a public debate on climate change and energy choices.

This year, the main energy players will consider how to respond today to global challenges. Under the theme of “Energy in transition for a living planet” attendees will examine how to “work toward responsible growth that reconciles economic development, environmental protection, and the reduction of global inequalities.”

In this context, Alstom, global leader in clean power, will contribute to the debate in several ways: Patrick Kron will discuss the global energy mix foreseen in 2030 analysing which technologies could rapidly be developed to get a significant impact on energy choices for the coming years (round table on September 14). Joan MacNaughton, Senior Vice President of Power & Environmental Policies, will consider various efficient energy policies (September 15) and Cintia Angulo, Country President for Mexico, along with the Mexican Energy Regulatory Commissioner will be examining North America - WEC regional work program (September 13).

As a leader in driving sustainable energy policies, Alstom representatives will also present papers on Carbon Capture and Storage, reconciling fossil fuel power generation development and climate issues and, Smart Cities, enhancing the importance of Grid based technologies to achieve clean power objectives. Papers on hydroelectricity, modernisation and the integration of power plants will also highlight the ways that Alstom’s broad portfolio of technology uniquely position the company to address climate change issues. Moreover, further to the presentations and papers, Alstom will exhibit its portfolio of clean power solutions.

Alstom works to ensure that the right policies are put in place to develop a healthy and sustainable power market. Over recent years Alstom has increasingly invested in carbon-free energy technologies and portfolio-wide solutions for meeting its customers’ energy needs in an environmentally responsible manner. Since no single solution exist, several approaches have to be considered, and Alstom keeps enlarging its broadest energy portfolio with an extensive offer in the fast-growing renewable energy market accounting activities in Hydropower, Tidal, Wind, Geothermal, Biomass and Concentrated Solar Power. Since efficiency is key to emissions reductions, the group is also working hard on innovation. Leading developer of CO2 Capture Technology, Alstom also continues to develop applications of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies to meet future emission targets. The group is working on 12 projects and six of them are currently in operation.
