The European wind industry is meeting in Copenhagen on 23-25 November at the annual WindEurope Conference and Exhibition. Copenhagen, “the world’s safest city”, according to The Economist. And it’ll be the wind industry gathering plus all those other parts of the economy we need to help electrify: transport, heating, hydrogen, heavy industry…
It’s the first physical WindEurope event for 2 years - hooray, we can talk face-to-face! And there are 3 other reasons why it’ll be worth being there:
The exhibition halls are sold out. 390 companies will be exhibiting, even more than at our last physical event. And more Ministers and policy-makers are coming than ever before. Then there are industry leaders from wind and other sectors and key players from finance and technology. 2 Formula E cars will be on show, and leading driver Stoffel Vandoorne will be taking the stage.
The conference programme covers all the key “live” issues in wind. Inside the exhibition there’ll be a Global Markets Theatre, an Innovation Park for start-ups and a Safety, Skills & Training Zone. Then there’s a wide range of social and side events - and stand parties can happen in the normal way! Safety will be paramount. You’ll need to show your vaccination or immunity certificate when you arrive, then you’ll get a bracelet which will get you everywhere all week without masks or distancing.
The whole wind energy value chain will be there: onshore and offshore including floating; developers and utilities; turbine manufacturers and supply chain; ports and logistics; and the banks and others who help make deals happen. The EU now want us to double how much new wind we build every year, to help meet their new climate targets. That sure gives us all something to focus on together. And remember, as WindEurope it’s an event organised by the industry for the industry.
You can still register here - do join us if you can.
It’s been a long wait, and there's a lot to catch up on and take forward… See you in Copenhagen!
