Japan's First International Exhibition & Conference Specialised in WIND Energy

WIND EXPO 2013

TOKYO--Reed Exhibitions Japan Ltd. announced the opening of WIND EXPO 2013 – 1st Int'l Wind Energy Expo & Conference.


It is the very first exhibition and conference in Japan specialised in wind energy and will be held within World Smart Energy Week 2013 – a collective gathering of 8 specialised exhibitions and conferences related to renewable/smart energy.

Concurrent Shows

*FC EXPO 2013 - 9th Int'l Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Expo

*PV EXPO 2013 - 6th Int'l Photovoltaic Power Generation Expo

*PV SYSTEM EXPO 2013 - 4th Int'l Photovoltaic Power Generation System Expo

*BATTERY JAPAN 2013 - 4th Int'l Rechargeable Battery Expo

*3rd ECO HOUSE & ECO BUILDING EXPO

*3rd INT'L SMART GRID EXPO

*ENETECH JAPAN 2013 - 4th Processing Technology Expo

Since the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster, the attitude towards renewable energy has changed dramatically in Japan. An increasing number of people are willing to switch from nuclear to renewable sources such as Photovoltaic and Wind energy.

Currently Japan's market potential in the wind sector is around 3.6 billion* JPY (2012), but according to the statistics it is estimated to increase to 12.9 billion* JPY by 2015. With the new feed-in tariff going into effect from July 2012 and as the interest to invest in wind energy is on the rise, Reed Exhibitions Japan has decided to launch an exhibition dedicated to the wind sector parallel to the other 7 renewable/smart energy related exhibitions listed above.

In fact, as the organiser of one of the world's leading renewable/smart energy event there have been questions and requests by numerous participants of World Smart Energy Week in the past about the opening of an exhibition specialised in wind energy. Therefore, Reed Exhibitions Japan strongly believes that WIND EXPO 2013 will be valued by many present and prospective participants of World Smart Energy Week and will expand opportunities and form a greater business platform for the renewable energy industry.

Opening Presentation/Briefing

An opening presentation/briefing for WIND EXPO 2013 will be held on June 11, 2012 from 2pm at Shinbashi Dai-ichi Hotel, Tokyo. The plan for the next 5 years will be revealed and many industry professionals from the industry (such as wind turbine manufacturers and wind energy generating system manufacturers) hoping to participate in WIND EXPO 2013 will present their thoughts on what to expect from the new exhibition. The event will be a perfect opportunity to learn and catch up with the latest renewable energy related products and information.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
