Popular industry event to be held on 11 August
This will be the twelfth time that eno energy has brought together experts from the wind energy sector in Rostock to discuss the latest industry developments and current challenges.
Depending on their specialism and preferences, delegates at Rostock Wind can attend the technical, financing or planning forums. Whichever track they choose, the focus of the event is always on solution-oriented dialogue between like-minded professionals. The programme is correspondingly varied.
In the planning forum, Herbert Schwartz of anemos-jacob, an independent consultancy firm, will lead a discussion on wind resource assessment. Dr Steffen Hundt of Think RE will bring together buyers and vendors of renewable energy in the financing forum, where he is set to talk about power purchase agreements (PPA). Marc Thomsen of CMS-SHM, meanwhile, will be discussing lifetime management with attendees of the technology forum. On top of all this, experts on law, raising capital, workplace safety and technology development will also be sharing their knowledge.
The event will kick off with a panel discussion for all attendees. Panel members will include Bärbel Heidebroek, vice chair of the German Wind Energy Association (Bundesverband WindEnergie e.V. – BWE). One of the key issues is how to accelerate the expansion of wind power. “The approval process generally takes around six years at the moment,” said Hermann Albers, chair of the German Wind Energy Association, speaking at Rostock Wind 2022. “This situation is no longer sustainable, especially in view of the rising demands on Germany’s energy supply.” His comments capture the tone of the last event, which primarily revolved around the German government’s summer package of measures. At Rostock Wind 2023, it is now time to take stock of the raft of legislation aimed at speeding up the expansion of wind energy generation.
Traditionally, Rostock Wind has always been held at the same time as Hanse Sail. A sailing trip on the River Warnow provides the perfect opportunity for a relaxing outing with a view of one of the world’s biggest gatherings of traditional sailing ships, after all the expert presentations and discussions. Anchors aweigh!
