Experts and leaders from business and politics

Simultaneous interpretation

In 2019, the Swedish Wind Energy Association celebrated our 10-year anniversary wich was reflected throughout the seminar series. Experts and leaders from both global and local bussinesses, national and regional politics, and governmental agencies participated on stage. One world champion, eight energy spokesperson and five Director-Generals, to name a few.

Translation into Engslih was offered in real time of all main seminars. On the exhibitor’s stage there was no translation but many presentations werw performed in English.


Opening and closing key notes

She is eleven-time world arm wrestling champion, now focusing on fighting climate change. He is the Swedish Minister of Energy and Digitalization. Heidi Andersson and Anders Ygeman – two of the key note speakers.

Shaping the roadmap ahead

Ten years ago the expansion of Swedish wind power accelerated, driven by a fortified electricity certificates system and the EU renewable energy directive. The Swedish Wind Energy Association was created, and our VIND-conference reached record numbers of participants.

Today – ten years later – wind power production in Sweden has increased tenfold, production costs are cut in half, and the Swedish 2030 target for renewable energy production is being reached a decade ahead of time. Conversely, we are in a crucial time of development and time is running short for saving the climate.

At VIND 2019 we learnt from the past decade to shape the roadmap for the 2020s.



One thousand participants!

Well over a thousand people visited VIND 2019 - two days of conference and exhibition. Hopefully, the good atmosphere in place also reflects in the evaluation questionnaire that has now been sent to the participants. The web is constantly updated with photography and film from
