Celebrating the knowledge and experience of wind power around the Baltic Sea – Wind Power Conference, Tallinn October 20 – 21, 2011
Initially planned only as a modest information exchange seminar, which turned into an international wind energy conference is over for this time. More than 150 people visited the event during the two days dedicated to wind energy in Tallinn. In addition to local participants there were visitors also from Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, Belgium and Denmark. High attendance and many supporting statements encourage further development of wind energy in Estonia and motivate to organize such events also in the future.
Just before the conference started wind power associations from Estonia, Sweden and Finland met to discuss further co-operation. The meeting was attended also by representatives from European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). As the region has great potential in wind energy it was mutually decided that we should find ways how to harness these opportunities. Therefore it is planned to identify together the problems that hinder the development of wind energy in all three countries, and develop strategies to overcome them.
Both Estonian and Swedish Wind Power Associations (EWPA and SVIF) would like to thank all the participants and speakers.
