Please mark your calendar for the first international community wind event of the year 2016!
The World Wind Energy Association will organise the symposium
“Tailwind and Headwind for Community Power – Regional and Global Community Wind Perspectives” in Bonn, Germany, on 26 January 2016.
We expect 100 international and German experts, amongst them representatives of community projects and associations, politicians, researchers and other relevant community power stakeholders. Speakers from several European countries, from Canada, Japan, Mali, Mexico and South Africa have already confirmed their attendance.
The symposium will start with a presentation of the most recent WWEA study on community wind in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia, which is based on personal interviews with CEOs of numerous community wind projects. After we leave the grounds of the German case, we will focus on international cases. Speakers and panellists from all continents will enrich the understanding of the global potentials and challenges of community wind. The symposium will conclude with a publication recommending policies which would be beneficial for community power projects.
Stay tuned for the upcoming programme – the participation in the event will be free of charge. In case of interest, please register here.
