The European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition (EWEA 2014) will take place 10 - 13 MarchBarcelona, Spain.
EWEA is the only annual event which combines an extensive exhibition of the leading players with a conference covering every key aspect of the wind market – from technical and theoretical to policy and practice. Presenting at EWEA is an ideal opportunity to share experiences and discuss the latest research developments, technologies, policies and products to key decision makers, the wind industry and wider electricity community. For general information on EWEA 2014, please visit the EWEA 2014 website.
