OFFSHORE 2011, organized by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA
), is Europe's largest exhibition of offshore wind turbines.
Taking place in Amsterdam between November 29 and December 1, EWEA
Offshore 2011 is Europe''s premier wind energy event, where the industry''s brightest minds meet to exchange knowledge and forge business relationships .
Noting that "today, turbines account for 50% to 60% of offshore wind project costs, substructures for 25%, installation for some 15%, and grid connection some 10%," the EWEA
accepts that financing offshore wind farms on a nonrecourse basis "has proved challenging due to the financial crisis.
Prior to joining EWEA
, Dickson was working as vice president of global public affairs at Alstom.
This enlightened result is a kick in the teeth for the European Commission and its bloodless 2030 proposal published last month," Stephane Bourgeois from EWEA
said in a statement.
The workshop on integrating wind power was organised by the EWEA
in co-operation with the Turkish Wind Energy Association (TWEA/TUREB).
In its letter, EWEA
points out that wind energy contributes to all three key objectives of the EU's energy policy, namely reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving the competitiveness of Europe and ensuring security of supply.
From 10 to 12 of March EOLOS, one of KIC InnoEnergy s supported start-ups, will attend the EWEA
OFFSHORE 2015 conference and exhibition that will be held at the Bella Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark.
On the same day, EWEA
(the European Wind Energy Association) published a statement highlighting the "exorbitant" cost of importing fossil fuels to Europe.
The wind energy sector is currently witnessing a boom: the EWEA
has 700 members in 60 countries, and the sector is growing steadily.
Others: Sintef (NO), ECN (NL), Technofi (FR), RSE (IT) DENA (DE), ENTSO-E (BE), Brunel (UK), Comillas (ES), IST (PT), Leuven (BE), Ensiel (IT), Tu Berlin (DE), IPE (PL), Eurelectric (BE), Europacable (BE), EWEA

The European wind industry strongly supports the creation of a single market in electricity," said Paul Wilczek, senior regulatory affairs advisor at EWEA
