The Global Wind Summit: a conference developed “by the industry, for the industry”

By the industry: The call for abstracts and peer-review process by WindEurope and EAWE members ensures a unique blend of relevant academic and industry content giving you the latest developments in the sector, from lab to field.

For the industry: The conference is where players across the wind energy sector, from industry and academia, can exchange ideas and experience to the benefit of the sector as a whole.

All the revenue generated from our events is reinvested in services to the wind industry, so that you still benefit long after the event has ended.
