EWEA wind energy conference

The annual European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) event has officially opened today in Paris with added security checks at the doors.
Three of the four planned keynote speakers will be attending as planned: European Commission’s vice president for energy union, Maroš Šefcovic, German energy minister Rainer Baake, and Belgian energy minister Marie-Chistine Marghem.
Yesterday, Chief Executive Officer of EWEA, Giles Dickson said in a statement:
“The European Wind Energy Association expresses its sincere condolences and sympathies to all those touched by the tragic events that unfolded in Paris on Friday 13 November. Our hearts and thoughts go out to them and the people of France at this very difficult time.
“EWEA has been working closely with the local authorities and they have advised us to move forward with preparations for EWEA 2015 as intended. We have therefore decided that the EWEA 2015 event in the French capital this week must go ahead as planned.
“We are taking all the necessary security and logistical measures to ensure the utmost safety and care is taken throughout the four-day event. I would like to assure everyone that EWEA has not taken this decision lightly, but we feel it is essential that we stand firm in the face of such adversity. We must continue as we mean to go on.”
The website for the event is live streaming the plenary sessions and there is a hotline available for anyone who has any questions: +32 2 213 1866.
