A THERMIE Exhibition organised by the Directorate-General for Energy (DG XVII) will focus on the results obtained from a wide range of projects undertaken in the context of the Community's THERMIE programme for the promotion of energy technology in Europe. The Exhibition will take place in Brussels on 11-16 October 1993.

Projects on view at the Exhibition are drawn from the sectors of rational use of energy in industry, buildings and transport, solar thermal and solar photo-voltaic energy, energy from biomass and waste, wind energy, geothermal energy, solid fuels and hydrocarbons.

Forty companies from different Member States will exhibit technologies from a selection of the most successful Community-supported projects, displayed either as models or as actual equipment. Display panels will complement the exhibits and will provide information on a range of other technologies, supported not only through Community programmes, but also through national schemes or private investors. Comprehensive information on each project will be available to visitors, ranging from detailed technical data to investment costs, paybacks, savings achieved, environmental benefits, and replication potential.

In addition to the technology stands, there will be an area offering in-depth information about the impact of energy technologies on other political, social and economic objectives of the European Community. Six THERMIE stands will focus on the contribution of energy technologies to:

- Stabilizing energy supply security by diversification of supply and by more efficient use of energy in the Community;
- The improvement and protection of the environment by reducing emissions of CO2 and other pollutants;
- The integration of markets and the competitiveness of European industry with positive effects on employment and on SMEs;
- Social and economic cohesion in the Community, particularly with regard to less developed regions, rural areas and towns;
- The contribution of energy technology to third countries, particularly Central and Eastern Europe and the Maghreb countries.

The THERMIE exhibition aims to give visitors a clear view of the Community's work in the field of energy technology promotion. Among invited guests are Members of the European Parliament and senior officials of the other Community Institutions, as well as representatives from industry and finance, and from the professional federations and trade associations.
