ABOUT THE WEBINAR
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the trade organisation representing the global wind industry, and Informa Markets, the world’s leading global events and digital business, have announced a new long-term strategic partnership that will create a series of world leading wind power and energy transition events from 2021 onwards. Informa’s world-class expertise in organising live and digital events, will strongly propel GWEC’s mission of developing new and emerging markets for wind energy, scale the industry’s geographic footprint and foster dynamic debates among global stakeholders.
As we begin a new year and new decade, a chorus of voices are calling for the 2020’s to be a ‘decade of climate action’. Wind power will play a key role in realisingdecarbonisation and Net Zero targets, with 2021 set to be a record year for the industry with 78 GW of new wind energy installations forecasted globally this year. Events play a crucial role in bringing together investors, government and the supply chain to drive wind power growth across the world and accelerate the global energy transition. Planned events in 2021 will convene the international wind industry with policymakers and climate leaders in key regions in the lead-up to the crucial COP26 Conference, reinforcing the role of wind energy in achieving Nationally Determined Contributions and net zero commitments in line with the Paris Agreement. These events also present an opportunity for industry and governments in critical climate action regions to discuss a green economic recovery from COVID-19 and pathways to “build back better”.
In this webinar, GWEC and Informa Markets will provide more detail on this exciting new partnership, planned events in 2021, and how your company can get involved.
