14th World Wind Energy Conference & Exhibition

October 26 to 28, 2015 - Jerusalem, Israel

The forthcoming 14th World Wind Energy Conference & Exhibition 2015 will focus on wind power innovation for a 100% renewable energy supply, in harmony with the environment and society. This reflects our intention to further strive for technological, economic, social improvements while making the benefits of wind power available for all human beings.

The world market for wind turbines reached a total capacity of 336 GW and wind contributes today around 4% of the world’s power demand. We see a very fast growth in some emerging markets, especially in several Asian countries, Latin America and Africa, while the traditional wind markets in Europe and North America have slowed down. Despite such disparities, it is today a well-accepted concept that wind energy is a cornerstone of the future energy mix. And it is encouraging to see that more and more countries have set very ambitious targets for renewable energy deployment, some with the official aim of 100% renewables.

Wind blows all over the world freely, crossing all territories. The utilization of wind energy should also break boundaries and deserve multilateral cooperation. Given the fact that we share the same one planet, different countries and organizations need to take efforts to make wind energy resources serve all peoples. For this purpose, it is good to see that in many parts of the world local communities have become the main drivers of wind power investment distributed wind power a practical solution to improve also the life of people in remote areas without electricity.
