The most important international forum for the small wind industry will take place during the Intersolar Europe exhibition in Munich

Munich, February 2, 2017 - The World Wind Energy Association WWEA and Intersolar Europe are pleased to invite the small and medium wind stakeholders as well as the solar PV and energy storage industry to participate in the World Small Wind Conference WSWC2017, taking place in Munich/Germany on 1 and 2 June 2017, in parallel with the Intersolar Europe exhibition 2017 (31 May - 2 June, 2017).


The main theme of the conference is Small Wind & Solar Hybrid Systems - Key to a Self-sufficient Energy Future. The conference is aimed at jointly exploring the current status and future developments of the wind & solar hybrid technology as well as to present new innovative business models that could exploit the market of self-supply electricity. In addition, latest developments on small wind technology will be presented.

Stefan Gsänger, WWEA Secretary General, "Integrated hybrid solutions are an important market for the small wind industry. Small wind and solar power are natural partners. Hence we are very pleased that we can invite small wind and solar stakeholders to meet at one of the most important renewable energy events, Intersolar Europe, in order to discuss jointly latest technical developments and innovative business models."

"We are convinced that the global energy transition will be a success. 100 percent renewables is achievable, with photovoltaics and wind energy serving as central pillars for a future-ready energy grid and effective climate protection. Therefore we are excited to welcome the co-location of the World Small Wind Conference with Intersolar and ees Europe in Munich", states Dr. Florian Wessendorf, Managing Director Solar Promotion GmbH.
