Offshore Wind conference 2011
Monday, 28th June
The Offshore Wind China 2011 Conference and exhibition, the world’s second largest offshore wind event has taken place on the 15th June 2011. Offshore wind leaders, both national and international, took part in demonstrating that China significant potential for offshore wind power development. The event was organised by the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association, Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Committee and the Shanghai International Exhibition Co., Ltd, following the success of the three previous exhibitions. This year’s exhibition covered an area of nearly double that of the last one and the number of attendees expected for the conference was nearly 800.
Global warming has highlighted the need for such environmental technology and the growth of the green economy. The global financial crisis has led to the faster development of emerging industries such as wind power. Because of this a number of new companies have released their sustainable development strategies with focus on “Green economy”. Wind power is now the world’s fastest growing energy source and offshore wind power represents the most advanced of wind power generation technology, with more then 100 countries having established markets.
This year’s event has also helped to further international trade, with sourcing teams from Sinovel, Vestas and Shanghai Electric conducting trade meetings for the participating wind turbine manufacturers and components suppliers.
the event organisers hope that the Offshore wind China exhibition will grow into a technology-focused trade event in the offshore wind industry. The combination of exhibition and conference should help companies that have either entered the market or are thinking about entering.
