For 14 years, Energoexpo was Hungary’s leading integrated energy forum, which was accompanied by conferences. The specialists of V-Trade Exhibitions Kft. considered that an energy-themed event dealing with energy efficiency and sustainability is timely again, which, however, addresses not only the profession but also the audience interested in energy current affairs.
Spas are in focus
Zoltán Pajna, chairman of the local government of Hajdú-Bihar county, reported in his opening speech that in the seven-year EU budget cycle behind us, 41 settlements in Hajdú-Bihar will receive a total of HUF 7.3 billion in energy investments.

Triple target system
Regarding the government’s energy strategy, Viktor Horváth, the Deputy Secretary of State responsible for energy transition at the Ministry of Energy, said that we have had two busy years behind us, and we are likely to have at least as long an exciting period ahead of us. Three basic goals determine domestic energy policy: energy should be available, affordable and not a burden on the environment. We operate in the target system of affordability and sustainability in terms of security of supply, but the emphasis may change in accordance with the events taking place around us.
Power plants are being built
In his presentation entitled “Energy stability in the light of sustainability”, Dr. Csaba Kiss, president and CEO of MVM Balance Zrt. and MVM Mátra Energia Zrt., spoke about how the development strategy of their company group is closely related to Hungarian energy policy.
We also operate the market-leading group of companies in the spirit of security of supply, affordability and sustainability, and our developments and investments are aligned with this. We have embarked on serious developments in order to be able to serve the rapidly growing demand for electrical energy. No new power plant has been built in the country for many years, and we are now filling this gap. We are working on several gas turbine projects using state-of-the-art technology, and the same can be said about the two new energy storage facilities that are being built. We are preparing a lot of new projects, so it will not be up to us to safely serve the growing energy needs of industry and the country
