EU Offshore Wind Power Shows Solid Growth

EWEA OFFSHORE 2011 will be held in Amsterdam from 29 November till 1 December. The first conference was held in Berlin and the next one followed in Stockholm, in 2009. The 2011 meeting is expected to attract over 7,500 professionals, which includes senior experts, global offshore players, and companies active in offshore wind and its related industries. Around 300 companies from both current and future offshore wind supply chains will be exhibiting their goods and services.

Eleven offshore wind farms, worth some € 8.5 billion and with a total capacity of 2,844MW, are currently under construction in European waters. The size of the installed offshore wind turbines averaged 3.4MW, up from an average of 2.9MW during the first half of 2010. A total of 101 new offshore wind turbines, with a capacity of 348MW, were connected to the power grids in the UK, Germany and Norway during the first six months of 2011.

EWEA OFFSHORE 2011 will also see the publication of a new EWEA report on offshore wind power: a compilation of all the valuable information needed to create the 150GW of offshore generating capacity planned to be in place by 2030. This will provide the professionals attending the conference with a detailed ‘state of the industry’ summary for every aspect of the wind industry (from the policy framework after 2020 and grids financing, to supply chain evolution and power production).

Windtech International releases Media Planner 2012
As we all know planning ahead is important. Why not plan to include Windtech International in your promotional activities to ensure you reach a truly international readership? Windtech International goes straight to key decision-makers in the international wind energy industry. Around half of our readers are decision makers in senior management positions. Currently, 85% of the magazine's distribution is to individual qualified subscribers and it is our goal to increase this to at least 90% in 2012. All other recipients are members of their national wind energy associations and are therefore very dedicated to the wind energy business.

Windtech International reaches a worldwide readership of professionals active in the wind energy industry through a targeted global distribution. Around 4,000 copies are distributed worldwide (in 108 countries) with a frequency of eight issues a year. On average the magazine is read by 3.2 persons within each organisation. This means that Windtech International reaches more than 12,000 people in the industry. With its technology focus, Windtech International is clearly filling an information gap in the industry, and this is very much appreciated by the continuously growing readership. For 2012 we have prepared a Media Planner containing dates of magazine issues, and copy guidelines/deadlines for contributors, potential advertisers, and those wishing to reach our extensive readership. Please feel free to contact me to receive the 2012 Media Planner.
