The 7th Wind Power Asia will focus on technological and political solutions to promote renewable energy and synergize with the central government’s directive for a low carbon technology driven economy as announced at the National Congress in early March 2010. A series of measures outlined by the Chinese government include improving energy efficiency, increasing energy conservation and lowering carbon emission by developing sustainable energy sources, with special emphasis on wind energy generation. Further, in line with the government’s policy of promoting scientific and economic development, the National Energy Administration has listed speeding up the transformation of energy development as the top of the agenda in 2010. As such, energy planning of the 12th Five-Year Plan being formulated now has put more emphasis on clean energy development. These policies serve as direct boosters for the development of Wind Power Asia which signals new opportunities for both manufacturers and trade buyers.
Wind Power Asia 2010, held simultaneously with Clean Energy Expo China 2010, is managed by Koelnmesse, the China Electricity Council and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) Beijing Sub-council. The cooperation of the three parties aims to speed up the optimization of the energy mix in China; establish a steady, economical, clean and safe energy supply system; and achieve sustainable economic development through sustainable energy development.
Till date, Wind Power Asia has registered more than 200 confirmed exhibitors. It is expected that well over 300 exhibitors will sign up and the exhibition area will cover 25,000sqm.
Consistent support from loyal exhibitors and debut of new players Over 80 per cent of the exhibitors at Wind Power Asia 2009 will again be participating in 2010.
