Our 2022 Sponsors

The European wind industry continues to prove to be vital in providing the necessary energy capacity to meet governmental renewables targets, with a current capacity of 236GW and a further expansion of 116GW by 2026. Key markets including the UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark and Spain are leading the way, with newer markets including Ireland, Poland and Romania promising to contribute to the upcoming “boom”.

New markets such as green hydrogen, floating wind and energy storage will require a huge commitment of infrastructure development to be implemented effectively. But promise to be a vital contributor towards decarbonisation efforts.

Europe’s expertise in technological and scientific development, and industrial know-how in this sector is unrivalled. However, challenges still need to be resolved to ensure the upcoming expansion runs as smoothly as possible.

The summit will return to Europe in December (and the USA in October) to shine a spotlight on Wind Power in 2022, and show attendees what’s next for the sector, where to invest and how to maximise revenue from assets. Wind Finance & Investment Europe is the meeting place for institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds, solar, wind and storage funds, developers, and large energy buyers to do business. Always senior, packed with the very people at the forefront of the energy transition, this is the meeting for serious contenders.

Scotland continues to be a leading nation in renewable energy production. This was highlighted in June's CfD auction, with 1.85GW of offshore contracts every onshore wind contract, totalling 1.5GW, awarded to projects in Scotland. With near-perfect weather conditions and no intention of slowing down the number of projects under construction, the Scottish Government Minister for Business, Trade, Tourism and Enterprise, Ivan McKee, will showcase the future of wind power in Scotland.
