After last year’s 1st International Community Wind Symposium with more than 100 experts and practitioners from 20 countries, the event will start with the presentation of the most recent WWEA and LEE NRW study on potentials and challenges for community wind in NRW and Germany. After leaving the grounds of the German case, the discussion will focus on international implications and cases.

Speakers from several European countries, from Australia, Japan, Mali, Canada, South Africa and Chile have already confirmed their attendance. In the immediate run-up to the COP23 in Bonn in November 2017, the numerous international and German participants will include representatives of community projects and associations as well as from governments and international organizations, politicians, researchers and other relevant community power stakeholders.

For WWEA, community power plays an important role as community and citizen-owned renewable energies offer huge potentials for combating poverty and to improve livelihoods. Therefore WWEA sees it as one of its key tasks to highlight the role of community power in different forums worldwide and to make sure that in the future such models can play their role on a much larger scale.

Participation is free of charge. In case of interest in participation, please send a short message including your name and affiliation to Fabian Tenk ft@wwindea.org
