The forthcoming 16th World Wind Energy Conference & Exhibition "Popular and Participatory Wind Power" will become the most important international wind energy event of the year. More than 500 experts from 40 countries are expected to attend WWEC2017, amongst them top wind and renewable energy experts from all over the world - from science, industry, governments and international organizations.
The WWEC2017 will tackle the main theme Popular and Participatory Wind Power. WWEC2017 will focus on how the transition towards a renewable energy supply can build on strong social support through participatory approaches. Dedicated and interactive sessions will tackle the topics of social participation and community power as well as related successful national and international policies.
Another core topic of WWEC2017 is how wind power can play a role in a full renewable energy supply system and which business models could be applied. Several sessions deal with integrated system solutions, on large scale as well as in the off-grid sector. Also other technical aspects, from wind resource assessment to technological requirements for arctic climate, are on the agenda.
The plenary panel on the first day of WWEC2017 will deal with the current situation on the Nordic wind power markets, the crisis of the certificate scheme and how to overcome it. Panelists will include wind power experts and top decision-makers from all Nordic countries, including Swedish Energy Minister Ibrahim Baylan.
100 speakers will present all important aspects of wind power utilization in 25 sessions.
