A specialist audience

Another of the ways in which EWEA supports the industry!
In addition to representing the views of the industry to the EU-institutions and issuing in-depth reports and studies, EWEA organises technology workshops such as this solely to satisfy requests from its members for quality debates on the issues that matter most.

And it's half the price of other similar events!
EWEA technology workshops are excellent value for money and are typically half the price
of those offered by commercial organisers. As the industry's non-profit association in
Europe, EWEA can hold these workshops thanks to the continued support of its members.
