The next Global Wind Energy will be held from September 25-28, 2018 parallel to the WindEurope Summit in Hamburg’s fairgrounds. Around 1,400 exhibitors from 34 countries are expected to present their latest products in the onshore and offshore industry.
More than 70 non-European countries are now focusing on wind energy as part of their national climate protection plans. Such efforts will likely top the agendas at both the WindEurope Summit and the Global WindEnergy Hamburg next year. Bernd Aufderheide, Chairman of the Management Board of the Hamburg Messe and Congress GmbH, said: “As organisers of the world’s leading expo, we are pooling our skills with WindEurope to offer the wind industry the best platform for development in view of the growing global perspectives for the sector. Such a high-calibre event with an absolute orientation next year in Hamburg is held nowhere else in the world.”
Representatives of commerce, government ministries and stakeholders will focus on the sector. Around 500 presentations will highlight the latest technical developments to improve performance, grow revenue and reduce the cost of wind energy farms with a view to the future. Frank Horch, Senator for Economics, noted: “Hamburg is again presenting itself as a global wind energy capital. We will give the German Ministry of Economics and Technology’s example of the Norddeutsche Energie Wende (North German Energy Transition – NEW) 4.0 to show what energy supply solutions are needed across regions. The global wind energy summit in Hamburg with its cluster of skills is being held in exactly the right place.”
