This session, co-ordinated by the French Wind Energy Association (FEE), is dedicated to the place of wind energy in the current climate change negotiations concluding at COP 21 (Paris, 30 November to 11 December). It will be an opportunity to discuss the different ways in which the UN negotiations could have an impact on the industry and in the economic development structure.

High-level representatives from various countries, companies and backgrounds will take part in a panel debate presenting their strategies and ambitions linked to shifting to renewable energies and will discuss their sustainable development policies and adaptation strategies. Short- and long-term perspectives for wind development will also be addressed during this session, as well as the role of the civil society in accelerating wind energy development/as a widely acceptable solution in the context of climate change.
