WindEurope Bilbao Conference & Exhibition 2022
5 April @ 08:00 - 7 April @ 17:00
The WindEurope Bilbao Conference & Exhibition, organized by WindEurope, will take place in Bilbao on 5-7 April 2022. It will be the second time Bilbao has hosted the event, after 2019. It will be a full exhibition and conference, showcasing the latest in onshore and offshore wind, as wind gears up to be Europe’s leading source of electricity later this decade.
The event will comprise an exhibition showcasing the latest development in wind energy and a conference covering all the key market, technology, and policy issues. The last WindEurope event in Bilbao in 2019 attracted 300 exhibitors and 8,500 visitors, creating an economic impact of more than €10m euros in terms of GDP.
The event will come at a decisive time for the European wind industry. The EU and national Governments are counting on the indsutry to help deliver Europe’s climate and energy targets. Wind is 16% of Europe’s electricity consumption today. The EU wants it to be half by 2050 – and electricity to play a much bigger role in the energy mix. That implies a huge expansion in wind energy: from 180GW in the EU today to 1,300GW by 2050. Wind is set to become Europe’s number one source of electricity by the end of the 2020s.
