EWEA 2012 first event to be labelled WindMade !

EWEA 2012 Conference & Exhibition in Copenhagen is the first event ever to be labelled by WindMade as being 100% powered by wind.

The total electricity consumed at the event will be procured exclusively by wind power. This includes the six month long event preparations at the EWEA offices, the power usage at the Bella Center and electricity used at the social events (receptions and conference dinner).

In order to cover 100% of the electricity used for EWEA 2012, EWEA has committed to procuring an equivalent amount of GoldPower, a high quality, energy based product. The power comes from windfarms in developing countries (with no Kyoto targets), thereby demonstrably stimulating investments in new capacity.

This commitment is compliant with the requirements set out in WindMade’s newly launched ‘Events Standard’.
