Good quality and cost-competitive steel central to success of wind energy industry manufacturing in Europe

Access to good quality and cost-competitive steel is a key pillar to the success of the European wind power industry. It enables the industry to compete effectively both against conventional energy sources and in third country wind energy markets. WindEurope is alarmed therefore by the decision to render the existing safeguard measures on steel imports … Continue reading Good quality and cost-competitive steel central to success of wind energy industry manufacturing in Europe
