Wind Energy Projects – Stormy weather or plain sailing?
26 - 28 June 2014
Wind Energy Projects are one of the main drivers of the “Energiewende” (Energy turnaround). The wind energy is developing dynamically and the wind industry is facing an increasing globalisation. In the past years Hamburg has developed into Europe’s wind energy capital. Leading manufacturers and component suppliers, and other companies involved in the wind industry have moved their headquarters to Hamburg and/or established their seats in this international port andtrading city.
Hamburg is close to the off shore projects in the North Sea and the Baltic. According to a recent survey, a total of 1,466 renewable energy companies are based in the metropolitan region of Hamburg, employing a total 24,700 people. Half of those are employed in the wind industry –more than in any other sector.
In our seminar we have explored recent trends, developments and upcoming key issues.
