At VIND 2018 we were proud to present introductory key note speaker Laura Cozzi, Chief Energy Modeller at the IEA, presenting the fresh and updated World Energy Outlook. Day two focused on finance featuring some of the biggest investors in Nordic wind energy. Visitors also met with Magnus Hall, head of Vattenfall, and Zygimantas Vaiciunas, Lithuania’s Minister of Energy.

Magnus Hall and Laura Cozzi 2018


2018 year’s theme

Reports tell us the threat of global warming is increasing. But so is the opportunity for wind energy to offer a sustainable solution. While simultaneously electrifying domestic industry and transportation, export of green electricity can lessen emissions substantially thanks to changes made in the European emission allowance trading system. In Sweden, the value of investments will amount to at least 20 billion Euro to meet current goals alone, and if the remaining obstacles are eliminated the business will deliver even more, even sooner.

All seminars were translated into English in real time (Except a few on the smaller exhibitor’s stage)
