The World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) is pleased to announce the 21st World Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition (WWEC2023), taking place on 7-9 November 2023 in Hobart, the capital of Tasmania (Australia).
The main theme of WWEC2023 is “Symphony of the Renewables” referring to the manifold synergies of a combination of wind power and other renewable energies, such as hydro, solar, geothermal, ocean, bioenergy and storage technologies such as hydrogen – ultimately for a 100% renewable energy supply.
WWEC2023 takes place at a time when governments around the world have become more aware than ever that renewable energy alone can ensure sustainable development, as the former President of India stated already during WWEC2006 that renewable energies are affordable and accessible and represent freedom and peace energies alike.
WWEC2023 will in particular take the socioeconomic dimensions of renewable energy into account: all sectors of society need to be mobilised, from governments, citizens and communities, businesses, science and academia, civil society etc. Local ownership and community engagement models will be discussed which will help to ensure, by sharing benefits, that there is strong social support of the energy transformation.
