The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA), will stage its 2015 offshore wind conference and exhibition in Copenhagen. Motivating factors for selecting Copenhagen was a strong and unified partnership behind the Danish bid as well as Denmark’s pioneering position within offshore wind.
Copenhagen was chosen as host city for the EWEA Offshore 2015 ahead of competing candidate cities such as Stockholm, Amsterdam and Paris. EWEA Offshore takes place every second year and focuses exclusively on the offshore wind market and associated services and products.
- It is fantastic news for Denmark and the Danish wind industry that EWEA Offshore will be hosted in Denmark in 2015. A lot of hard work and diligence has been invested in making this happen. I owe great thanks to our collaborative partners at State of Green, Copenhagen Municipality, Wonderful Copenhagen and Bella Center. Without their cooperation, we could not have brought EWEA Offshore to Copenhagen yet again, says Jan Hyllebjerg, CEO at the Danish Wind Industry Association.
A Nexus for Wind
The EWEA 2015 offshore event will hold an extensive number of activities for conference delegates and visitors interested, or active in the offshore wind sector, to source the latest technologies, services and advice from key experts in the sector.
- Denmark is a nexus for offshore wind energy and companies located here are able to deliver end-to-end solutions throughout the entire offshore wind power value chain. As the global wind power hub, we hope to continue the current trend at EWEA Offshore events by setting yet another visitors record here in Copenhagen in 2015, says Finn Mortensen, Executive Director at State of Green.
State of Green Tours
While most of the EWEA 2015 offshore event will take place at Bella Center in Copenhagen, State of Green will offer the possibility to witness wind energy solutions first hand.
- We've been serving political- and professional decision makers since 2008 and have hosted more than 300 delegations consisting of more than 4,500 visitors. At the EWEA event in Copenhagen in 2012 we served more than 300 visitors and we look forward to welcoming more delegates at EWEA Offshore 2015, says Anette Brænder, Project Manager at State of Green and responsible for the State of Green Tours.
EWEA 2015 takes place from 1-3 December 2015 at Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
