TPWind & EWI
Funding wind energy R&D in Europe
Monday, 14 March

Room 1122, Brussels Expo
The European Wind Initiative (EWI) is a long-term, large-scale Programme for funding wind energy R&D in Europe, with a total budget (public and private) of € 6 bn for the 2010 – 2020 period. All relevant EU and national instruments contribute to its funding, hence making the EWI a game-changer in terms of European support to wind power.
Published by the European Commission in 2009, the EWI was officially launched in June 2010. It is rooted in the Commission’s Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and is now one of the most important instruments for the support of wind energy.
The EWI was developed and is being implemented by the European Wind Energy Technology Platform (TPWind), in cooperation with EU Institutions and Member States.
This event provided participants with an update on TPWind, which selected its new members in 2010, as well as with a detailed overview of the objectives, contents and implementing mechanisms of the EWI.
