11:30 - 13:00 Business meets Policy: what future for wind in Europe?
Business meets policy
Room: Hall 1
Many years of expansion in wind power across Europe have given us a world-leading industry. We've benefited from strong markets in most countries at some point the last 20 years. But in the last few years, we've seen stagnation in many markets, and growth concentrated in just a few. In 2015, Germany accounted for over half of all new installations. A number of the markets that have historically been engines of growth, are currently struggling with abrupt regulatory changes.
This session will look at the future of wind energy in Europe. Michael Liebreich, Chairman and Founder of Bloomberg New Energy Finance, will start the session with an overview of the prospects and challenges for the sector in Europe. A discussion on the outlook of onshore and offshore wind power follows involving industry leaders and European policymakers.
