Making transition work at WindEurope Summit 2016
Global energy is in transition over the last decade. In Europe we see three megatrends that reflect this transition: Structural changes within the energy market – transitioning from fossil fuels to renewables; Wind energy markets changing within Europe and Markets transitioning globally.
