The Basque Energy Cluster is a non-profit organization which was set up in 1996 to improve competitiveness in the Basque industrial fabric in the energy sectors by means of collaboration. The Basque Energy Cluster integrates companies that operate in the Spanish energy markets at the different segments of the supply chains: energy operators, component and equipment manufacturers and service companies, Research Centers, Universities and public administration bodies involved in the energy fields.
One of the most important value chains represented in the Basque Energy Cluster is the one related to wind energy. The Basque Country has played a leading role in the onshore wind energy marketplace, both from a technological and a business perspective. Multinational companies such as Iberdrola (wind farms developer) and Gamesa (wind turbines manufacturer) are leaders in the field of wind energy worldwide and capable of taking on a key role as drivers of the Basque industrial and business fabric. This competitive industrial fabric, integrated by manufacturers of electrical and mechanical equipment for the wind turbines, is backed up by a network of internationally renowned technology centres, as well as by highly qualified service companies.
About the side event
The objective of the side event organised by the Basque Energy Cluster during the EWEA 2014 Conference & Exhibition in Barcelona is to showcase the current portfolio of Basque companies in the value chain of wind energy and to present some of their most recent developments and projects. The event aims also to act as a promotional tool on the capabilities of Basque companies in the emerging offshore wind energy market.
This event is open to all EWEA 2014 participants.
