The conference featured more than 250 speakers and covered topics ranging from conventional and renewable energy; nuclear power; and power plant operation and maintenance to cogeneration and trigeneration systems; geopolitical balances and so on.

Dr. Fatih Birol, the chief economist at the International Energy Agency, noted that roles in the energy world are changing and said that the United States was going to be very popular – both in terms of energy and investments – due to the shale gas boom. Cüneyd Zapsu, president of the board of directors at Zapsu Consultancy, expressed his support for nuclear energy, adding that he could not imagine Turkey without nuclear energy and did not see another alternative.

The next ICCI: International Energy and Environment Exhibition and Conference will run 7–9 May 2015 at the Istanbul Expo Center.
