Thank you for coming!

More than 40 exhibitors and 750 visitors once again represented the largest annual conference of the wind power industry in the Nordic region. On 11-12 October of this year, we took over the halls at Münchenbryggeriet – The Brewery – a prestigious conference centre symbolic of the industry’s central role in the transition faced by Swedish energy.

All main seminars were translated into English. Please view the full programme here or scroll down for a selection of the attending speakers.

The  exhibition hall was where delegates met for networking, business meetings, lunch, coffee and drinks. Nätverket för vindbruk draw a full house with their parallel seminars and the exhibitor’s stage offered a series of much appreciated micro-presentations. The first day featured a dinner at which the Swedish Renewable Energy Award was rewarded to Apple.

Swedish wind power production is to double by 2030. Naturally this should be done in a smart and sustainable way; socially, ecologically and economically. At VIND 2017, we discussed how to put the right conditions in place – an effective and legally certain licensing process with local support, a modernised electricity system with a grid which works for wind power, as well as economy in existing and new projects.

Do not forget to reserve the dates for next years’ VIND 2018, October 24-25.
