Global Windpower 2006
Global Windpower 2006 is the world’s premier wind energy industry event. To be held this year in Adelaide, Australia (18-21 September) it is co-organised by the Australian Wind Energy Association (Auswind) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) . This is a unique opportunity for those interested in the global wind industry to meet, share information, exhibit products and ensure that wind power continues to establish itself as one of the world’s leading energy resources.
Taking place in the heart of the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific region, with an emphasis on the Chinese and Indian wind energy markets, the Australian event is the third in a series. The last two events were in Paris (2002) and Chicago (2004), attracting senior decision makers and high level industry representatives from around the world.
The programme for this year’s event will cover all aspects of the wind energy industry and its continued global development . Invited speakers include Andy Karsner, Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, US Department of Energy, Mohammed Boutaleb, Minister for Energy and Mines, Morocco, Ana Estanqueiro, Chair, International Energy Agency – Wind Implementing Agreement, Steve Bracks, Premier of Victoria state, and Theo Theophanous, Minister for Energy, Victoria.
During the event GWEC will launch its new Global Wind Outlook, with scenarios for the development of wind energy across the globe up to 2050.
