Event Description

WIND OUTSIDE EUROPE - HOW FAR CAN IT GO?

14:30 - 16:00, Tuesday, 27 September 2016

195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal at the Paris climate conference (COP21) last December. More than 70 countries highlighted wind power in their commitments. Join this Business meets Policy session to hear from international policymakers and business leaders how the implementation of the Paris climate agreement will affect the industry.

The focus shifts to emerging countries. Klaus Töpfer has headed the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP) for almost a decade. Under his leadership, UNEP started reporting wind resources and domestic developments, which facilitated large-scale investments. State Secretary Pradeep Kumar Pujari certainly knows the latter well. India is already the fourth biggest market and the capacity should boom thanks to an onshore wind potential of over 100GW and a 60GW target for 2020.
Europe’s politicians and businesses remain active worldwide. Hear from Jos Delbeke about upcoming initiatives after Paris. The economist acted as EU chief negotiator at previous UN climate conferences and has been running the European Commission's Directorate-General for Climate Action since its creation in 2010.
European turbine manufacturers have the lion’s share in today’s global market. Don’t miss out on updates from Xabier Etxeberria, Business CEO at Gamesa, and Morten Dyrholm, GWEC Chair and Vestas VP.
