Climate-neutrality needs wind energy to do more
Europe is going climate-neutral. That means more demand for wind energy. The Green Deal is a new deal for us. New customers. New partners. New business models.
A climate-neutral European economy requires huge volumes of wind energy in the power mix – up to five times what we have today. Major industries like chemicals, steel and others are actively looking to decarbonise by replacing the fossil fuel energy they use with clean electricity. The heating and transport sectors are going more electric too.
All this creates immense opportunities for onshore and offshore wind.
The EU sees wind being half of Europe’s electricity by 2050. So wind will be the backbone of the new decarbonised energy system. This’ll bring us new customers. We’ll need to diversify our partnerships, engage different industries and develop new business models. We’ll have to think supply and demand.
“Electric City” is a new onshore and offshore wind event, with participants from wind and beyond – heavy industry, mobility, district and domestic heating, storage, hybrids, hydrogen and many more – to join the conversation on how we build a clean economy.
This means new voices at the conference, debating changes we need in policy, business models and technology to deliver the transition.
It means new business partners and customers for you on the exhibition floor. Including people who haven’t engaged with wind before but now want to.
It means a unique event where you’ll find the new technologies, new thinking and new relationships to power the energy transition – and Europe’s Green Deal.
In 2021 WindEurope welcomes you to Electric City.
