World Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition WWEC2019 “Large-scale Integration of Wind Power” Rio de Janeiro

The World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) and Renewable Energy Centre – UFPE are pleased to invite papers and presentations for the 18th World Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition (WWEC2019), taking place on 25-27 November 2019 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The main theme of WWEC2019 is “Large-scale integration of wind power”.

WWEC2019 will focus on the opportunities offered by a renewable energy strategy which includes wind power as a cornerstone of a country’s energy supply system that is based on renewable energy. Such system will connect the different fields of energy utilisation such as electricity, transportation, industrial processes and heating/cooling. Flexibility options in generation as well as in consumption, storage and other backup technologies will play a key role in a smart energy supply system of the future.

WWEC2019 host country Brazil as one of the leaders in many renewable energy technologies and therefore an ideal location to discuss progress, challenges and achievements of a renewable energy world.

Wind energy experts from all over the world will gather at WWEC2019 to discuss lessons learned and success stories in the renewable energy sector.

WWEA and the Renewable Energy Centre invite the wind and renewable energy community from around the world to join us to help make the benefits of renewable energy available for all human beings.

The official conference languages will be Portuguese and English.
