Latest knowledge on wind resource, government incentives and grid access

European wind farm sites are diminishing making it critical for site developers to improve their knowledge of wind resource, grid access and government incentives

The European wind energy market is booming. 2007 saw a massive 20GW of new capacity and the market isn't set to change anytime soon. With such large-scale deployment of wind technology, excellent sites are becoming evermore scarce. This will significantly reduce the economic viability of new projects as available wind resources diminish and reduce potential profits. This makes it critical for site developers to improve their knowledge of wind resource, grid access and government incentives to ensure the long term success of their company in this competitive market.


The European Wind Farm Site Selection Summit is designed for project developers to gain the latest knowledge on wind resource, government incentives and grid access so they can choose the best site for their new wind farm.

The event takes place on 1-2 April 2009 in Hamburg and will be presented by leading experts from Garrad Hassan, European Wind Integration Study, Sgurr Energy, Qinetiq, Energiekontor, Ecofys, Eneco Milieu BV, BAE Systems, Projekt GmbH and many others who will join forces to give you inside information.

The event will give you the latest knowledge on wind resource, grid access, government incentives, how to tackle radar conflicts plus a detailed country-by-country analysis.
