Intercontinental Wind Power Congress Starts In Istanbul
Intercontinental Wind Power Congress, IWPC, is being held in Istanbul between March 31 to April 2. The congress will host wind energy representatives from 20 different countries in four continents at the WOW Istanbul Convention Center.
Turkish Wind Energy Association (TUREB – TWEA) President Mustafa Ataseven during his opening speech said that nine years ago, Turkey only had 20-30 MW of installed capacity generated from wind energy. Ataseven indicated that Turkey currently has over 4000 MW capacity which is an indication of the serious steps the country has taken during the last decade to increase wind energy’s share in the country.
Markus Tacke, the President of the European Wind Energy Association, said that Istanbul is pivotal to connecting many countries together and can be considered as an energy hub for renewable energy developments connecting Northern Africa and the Middle East.
