Kyriakos Kosmidis
"Evaluating and entering new markets is one of the future key business activities global wind players have to take into consideration as mature markets are showing lower growth rates while several new markets offer great opportunities and are catching up in terms of renewable policies and infrastructures.
Therefore it becomes crucial for us to enter new markets. Our customers reflect this development by showing cross boarder activities and entering new markets as well.
Another good example is Austria. Its renewable market environment shows dynamic business opportunities. For this reason we as REpower are happy to discuss macro-environmental developments in emerging markets at the EWEA 2013 - the leading platform for the European wind business industry"
