Making transition work

The theme of the WindEurope Summit 2016 is Making transition work. The summit will feature over 45 conference sessions tailored to improve the understanding of the megatrends that are shaping the sector in Europe and beyond.

The programme offers something for all industry players and unparalleled business and networking opportunities. Whether the topic is changing market dynamics in Europe, emerging market developments or game-changing technologies, conference delegates will be offered unique insights and top-level speakers.

The WindEurope Summit is supported by some of the wind energy industry’s biggest names including the official event ambassadors Enel Green Power, DONG Energy, ENERCON and Nordex.

It will be framed by two must-attend social functions, with a WindEurope member reception on the eve of the event and a gala dinner in the heart of Hamburg to cap-off the occasion.

Cooperation with WindEnergy Hamburg:

The leading wind energy conference is teaming up with WindEnergy Hamburg, the top exhibition for the wind industry. The two events will run side-by-side in Hamburg, which is a global industrial hub for the wind energy sector.
