EWEA 2014 Wind Energy Congress


Línea Verde

The director of the IEA, who will attend the inaugural meeting, states that "Europe risks losing its leading position in renewable energy".

Authorities, business leaders and experts from all around the world will meet in Barcelona in March to discuss the future of energy in Europe. The meeting, which will be held within the largest European wind energy congress, EWEA 2013, is particularly significant, as it will take place just before the meeting of the European Heads of State and Government, where they will decide on the scope of the objectives of the EU for 2030.

The executive director of the International Energy Agency, Maria van der Hoeven, who will participate in the conferences, together with a large number of company CEOs, said that "Europe risks losing its top spot in renewable energy if it does not invest sufficiently in grid and market integration". Van der Hoeven will discuss this in further detail at the opening of the event, which will focus on how wind energy companies can recover their business.

The situation of the industry in Spain will also be discussed throughout the congress. On Monday 10 March, European wind energy associations will give their support in a press conference to Spanish wind energy and renewable energy sectors, in light of the tough situation they are experiencing as a consequence of the Energy Sector Reform implemented by the Government. 

On 11 March, executives and CEOs of leading companies of the sector, such as Alstom Wind, Gamesa, Acciona Energy, ERG Renew, Enel Green Power, EDP Renováveis and Iberdrola will share their strategies for these difficult times in the sector. 

The fair held annually by EWEA, the European Wind Energy Association, in Europe, will welcome approximately 10,000 visitors from 60 different countries and about 400 exhibitors. This year, the event will take place from 10 to 13 March 2014 at Fira Barcelona.
