The European Wind Energy Conference will analyse and debate the steps required for meeting a large part of European electricity needs by wind power. These include stable political frameworks, upgrading the existing power infrastructure to incorporate wind energy, taking steps to continue cost reductions, increasing offshore wind production and intensifying research, innovation and technological progress in the wind sector. The conference will also discuss ways to lighten the legislative barriers and increase public awareness.
EWEC 2007 will showcase to decision makers the two options detailed above: Action or No Action, and conclude with a concrete call for actions detailing the necessary roadmap to a new energy future, asking for immediate actions.
The event will bring together over 3,000 key players from the wind and electricity sectors for 4 days of intensive networking, new business development and information exchange.
