Looming trade wars: what implications for the wind supply chain?

Supply chain & logistics

When: Thursday, 27 September 2018, 10:45 - 12:00
Where: Room: Kopenhagen 1

Session description

Our industry has benefited from free trade to leverage global commodities and drive down wind energy costs. From Brexit, through China, to the US, uncertainty and trade restrictions pose a risk for the competitiveness of the European supply chain. This sessions will offer insights on how to deal with more difficult access to raw materials from third countries, increasing prices for commodities and supply bottlenecks. And what European Union’s trade policy is needed to keep the EU wind energy industrial capacities, jobs and growth at home.
