Abstracts for presentation to be submitted by 15 February

 In Italy, the wind power share over the total renewable energy sources touches 17%, and a tremendous increase is expected in the coming years. The Italian Government wants to pass from the actual 10’619 MW of installed wind power to at least 19’300 MW in 2030. Moreover, 20% of the installed wind power capacity is over 10 years old, representing an important test bench for the repowering procedures, including additional potentials for wind power to grow.

And a completely new scenario lies in the Italian energy panorama: floating offshore wind! After being the cradle of this technology, with the first prototype tested in 2007 at 21.3 kilometers (13.2 mi) off the coast of Apulia, now a sea of opportunity is in front of us with 40 projects already in the pipeline. If all the planned plants are going to be built, Italy will have from this additonal power of 17’000 MW in its energy portfolio.

            The World Wind Energy Association recognized the extremely favorable scenario for the wind energy development in the region, and awarded ANEV with the organization of the World Wind Energy Conference (WWEC) 2022. The World event will take place from 28 to 30 June in Rimini, Italy.

            As usual, a Call for Abstracts is organized, in order to allow close interaction and exchange between the academic and the industrial sectors and to share latest achievements.

WWEC2022 Background:

The 20th World Wind Energy Conference 2022 will take place under the theme “Collaborating for a Renewable Future” from 28-30 June at the Palacongressi di Rimini, co-hosted by WWEA, ANEV and Adria Congrex supported by KeyEnergy the renewable energy expo and in collaboration with Italian Exhibition Group. WWEC2022 has already obtained the support from important international organisations, including the Energy Watch Group, Global100RE, International Geothermal Association, International Hydropower Association, International Solar Energy Society, REN Alliance, the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency with its focus on the MENA region, World Bioenergy Association and others are amongst the organisations which have endorsed the event.
