This exhibition will provide a competitive stage for international companies which want to preoccupy Korea and Asia market where 'Low-carbon, Green Growth' is a national vision and all the domestic companies which want to enter global market to show off their cutting-edge latest products and technology.

The main participated companies are global companies such as SIEMENS(German), centrotherm(German), KACO New Energy(German), SMA(German), ASYS(German), SCHMID(German), Jonas & Redmann(German), Astronergy(China), Juli(China), Multi Contact(Switzerland).

As a renewable energy exhibition, it's the biggest in Korea. Additionally, PHOTON-International which is the world prestigious solar energy journal selected it as one of the top 10 global exhibition, positioning among Asian three biggest exhibitions.

As it celebrates the 10th anniversary, The International Green Energy Expos and Conference was revived as a true renewable exhibition after widening their specialization to three energy sources such as PV Korea, Wind Power Korea and Fuel Cell Korea instead of solely on solar energy.

Even though the state of solar power energy market is bleak, more and more solar energy generators are built. Especially, continuous increase of inverter installment reflects the trend. In Daegu, will there be a fierce competition of a lot of foreign(Refusol) and domestic(LS Industrial System and DASS Tech) companies led by global top companies such as SMA and KACO New Energy.  Also, confrontation between foreign and domestic companies is in equipment field.

The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
