In 2010, for the first time ever, more new wind power capacity was installed in developing countries and emerging economies than in the traditional mature wind markets . This confirms that wind can be deployed at large scale and it also shows the attractiveness of wind power for countries striving to diversify their energy mix and improve their security of supply in the face of rapidly growing demand.
Having been exclusively focused on the development of wind and turning wind power into an even better business, Vestas is relentlessly committed to develop this abundant, sustainable, competitive, autochthonous and easy to ramp up energy type into an energy source on par with oil and gas.
For this reason the company is 100 per cent focused on developing new wind energy producing solutions that enable a quick return on the investment and allow wind to be an even more competitive energy source, which can represent a substantial contribution to sustainable power supply in the world’s future energy mix.
That is also why Vestas will be proactively participating for the fourth time to World Future Energy Summit (WFES) which will be held in Abu Dhabi from January 16 to 19, with a multifaceted and targeted program in order to stimulate the wind energy debate, contribute to the green agenda and present its latest products, wind power plants’ solutions and service packages.
From January 16 to 19, Vestas top management representatives will be involved in high level panel and round tables discussions to talk about the global challenges faced by policy makers to boost energy infrastructure and pave the way for a sustainable future for their countries.
Vestas Mediterranean President, Juan Araluce, will take the floor on January 17 (10-11) at the “Business Leaders in Future Energy – Insight from the Executive Suite: driving sustainable energy for all”, in the main conference area.
On the same day, Inigo Sabater Elzaguirre, Vice President, Vestas Mediterranean Government Relations, will talk (14-15.15) at the session “Wind: powering up – seizing opportunities”, at the GWEC Conference area.
Morten Albaek, Senior Vice President of Vestas Group Marketing and Customer Insight, will speak on January 19 (11-11.30; Hall 7 stand 7350) at the Young Future Energy Leaders workshop “Future energy visionaries and innovations”.
In cooperation with MASDAR, the enterprise that operates to reach the broad boundaries of the renewable energy and sustainable technologies industry, Vestas will also be proactively involved in a series of initiatives targeted to the broadest public and fair’s visitors.
Vestas and MASDAR will closely collaborate in a dedicated “Wonder of Wind” area, featuring several interactive programs for children and young people, who will have the opportunity to “learn with fun” about wind and its benefits and to take part in online competitions.
University students from the Young future energy leaders’ program – managed and led by MASDAR Institute - will not only assist to some presentations about wind energy and its related technology but also to participate to a deep-dive presentation on the V112-3.0 MW virtual reality system: the 3D Vestas nacelle tour which Vestas is bringing around the globe to give people the possibility to look at a real nacelle from the inside.
Moreover, at Vestas stand at Hall 5, stand 5410, Vestas experts will be presenting the new V164 – 7.0 MW offshore turbine destined to take offshore to the next level with its unrivalled energy capture, together withthe new service package offer Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000), the energy based availability guarantee that ensures minimized lost production and maximized energy output.
