GWEC puts puff in WindEnergy Hamburg sails until 2024


The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) has signed up to be the exclusive Global Partner of the leading wind industry expo and WindEnergy Hamburg until the end of 2024.

An agreement to that effect between Claus Ulrich Selbach, Business Unit Director at Hamburg Messe und Congress, and Ben Backwell, CEO of GWEC, was signed during Brazil Windpower 2019 in São Paulo.

The next WindEnergy Hamburg tradefair takes place 22-25 September 2020 at the Hamburg Messe und Congress fair complex.

“Our partnership for the 2018 WindEnergy Hamburg was a great success, it was therefore clear that we should intensify this international co-operation,” said Backwell.

“We are very pleased that, in addition to our partnership with WindEurope, we will intensify our cooperation with our global partner GWEC and thus represent the global opportunities and new markets in wind energy even more,” said Selbach. 

WindEnergy Hamburg is attended by experts from more than 100 countries and attracts 1,400 exhibitors from around the world.

Within the scope of this co-operation, WindEnergy Hamburg co-sponsors the Global Wind Report. Published annually by GWEC, the report provides comprehensive data and forecasts reflecting the development of wind energy markets around the world.

GWEC will organise a series of events at WindEnergy Hamburg on investment and business opportunities in key non-European wind markets.

Parallel with the WindEnergy Hamburg WindEurope presents a major onshore and offshore wind conference.

For four days, these events jointly form the Global Wind Summit, the biggest and most important gathering of the wind industry worldwide.

These exhibitions certainly bolster Hamburg’s claim to be the capital of the wind industry.
