CREIA new cooperation partner for WindEnergy

The Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA) is the new cooperation partner of WindEnergy 2006 – International Trade Fair. CREIA is China’s largest renewable energies association, with more than 100 member companies, and will from now on give its support and backing to WindEnergy as the exclusive trade fair in Europe. This partnership enables WindEnergy to develop one of the largest growth markets in the energy sector. China's electricity demand is practically exploding. The Government in Beijing set the course for renewables with entry into force of the Renewable Energies Act on 1 January 2006, aiming to derive 10 per cent of the country's power from renewable energy sources by 2010. The intention is to install wind turbines with a total output of 4000MW by then, rising to about 20,000MW by 2020. By comparison, China reported 764MW at year end 2004.

Eolica Expo Mediterranean in partnership with EWEA

Artenergy, the Italian Publishing House for renewable energies, and the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) have signed an agreement that provides collaboration for the initiatives that they will organise until 2008. Artenergy will also be the local organiser of EWEC – European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition – 2007, and it will support EWEA by means of logistic and press office activities.

2006 European Wind Energy Conference: call for abstracts

The call for abstracts is now open for the next European Wind Energy Conference (EWEC), which will be held in Athens, Greece, from 27 February to 2 March 2006. The 2006 EWEC conference will present and discuss a wide range of issues, from resource assessment and innovative turbine design to market and policy developments, drawing on experience from all over the world. Senior politicians and representatives from international institutions and national governments will be invited to speak at this leading international wind event. Abstract submission provides an opportunity to those working in the wind sector to share their experiences and present their latest products and services to the international wind community.

Wind turbines. Will noise stop the growth?

Renewable energy targets demand a challenging increase in wind turbine capacity over the next 10–15 years, but current experience puts noise above visual effects as factors that delay, and may even stop, the progress of new installations. The first international conference on wind turbine noise will be held in Berlin on 17 and 18 October 2005. The full title ‘Wind Turbine Noise: Perspectives for Control’ sets the theme of the groundbreaking conference squarely in this main problem area. The conference will act as a forum in which information on noise can be shared between noise specialists, manufacturers, planners and developers, all of whom are invited to offer papers or attend as delegates. Organised by INCE/Europe, a Member of the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (I-INCE) and a Sustaining Member of the European Acoustics Association (EAA), the conference will bring together the latest information on noise and vibration from wind turbines, to give an unbiased framework from within which future developments can be assessed.

Offshore Wind Energy Experts Meet in Hamburg

On 14 and 15 June 2005, the 4th Offshore Wind Energy Conference will take place concurrently with the 3rd Symposium in Hamburg for the first time. From now on, the two events will be convened together. The expert conference on the design and operation of wind turbines offers the operators of wind farms, plant manufacturers, investors and representatives of insurance companies alike a valuable discussion platform on matters of topical interest in the wind energy sector. With the migration from land to sea, a large number of technical requirements are being posed with regard to the reliability of the installations. In particular, the laying of electrical cables and the complicated approval procedures are for now the decisive aspects in the development and realisation of offshore wind farms. The conference programme includes an examination of the pros and cons for various types of multi-megawatt plants. On the day after the event, the participants will have the possibility of visiting the giant RePower 5M turbine at Brunsbüttel. The event will be chaired jointly by Germanischer Lloyd WindEnergie GmbH and in the ‘Hafen Hamburg’ Hotel.

Eolica Expo Mediterranean 2005

There has been widespread approval for Eolica Expo Mediterranean 2005, the Italian event dedicated to wind energy that will be held in Rome from 29 September to 1 October 2005. Still seven months from its inauguration, this fourth conference and exhibition has already aroused great interest from important international firms within the sector that have already confirmed their presence. This year, as in previous years, there will be a rich programme which features a large number of meetings and conferences arranged in collaboration with ANEV (National Association for Wind Energy), APER (Association of the Producers of Renewable Energy), Legambiente, Kyoto Club Italy and ISES Italy. It is interesting to note that CO2 Expo 2005 will be held simultaneously to Eolica Expo Mediterranean 2005. CO2 Expo 2005 is the first fair/conference dedicated to the climate and to the greenhouse gas emission market, which started on 1 January 2005 in Europe, and involves over 1,000 manufacturing companies in Italy alone.
