Husum, 6 February 2012. For the last ten years New Energy Husum (15 -18 March), has aimed to offer visitors to the exhibition a full overview of all renewable energies. Expert advice and specific information facilitate individual entry into the world of renewable energy – for businesses, communities and private individuals. The programme for the parallel congress has now been finalised. The focus is on practical information events covering everything from planning approvals and financing possibilities to profit margins. The “hot potato” of public acceptance will also be a topic – Bärbel Höhn of the green party Bu?ndnis 90/Die Gru?nen will be participating in the discussion.
In the UN year of “sustainable energy for all” the renewable energy exhibition
New Energy Husum and its congress programme will be helping people to seize the opportunity to get their energy from sustainable resources. The congress topics include technical innovations (presented by the renowned Fraunhofer Institut ISE or E.ON Hanse for example), advice on decentralised energy production (e.g. from EWS or the German Small Wind Association (BVKW), but also highly charged debates on energy policy. The congress does not shy away from such debate, and will be dealing with the subject of public acceptance of renewable energy and grid expansion with a panel discussion that includes Bärbel Höhn, deputy chair of the parliamentary party of Bu?ndnis 90/Die Gru?nen (17 March, 10:30). All New energy visitors can also attend the congress.
Denmark, partner nation of this year’s New Energy Husum, will provide a main focus of the congress. The German-Danish cooperation project FURGY will be comparing technical, economic and legal frameworks in both countries (16 March, 14:00). Experts will be explaining the requirements and advantages offered by the Danish energy market. Danish visitors to the fair will also be able to follow the congress programme in their own language.
The issues that will be discussed at the third world summit on small wind are of a more technical than political nature, but are nevertheless important for the future of small wind turbines and the development of renewable energy in general, as experts from all over the world will be exchanging ideas and information about binding technical standards which will foster further innovation progress. The combination of wind turbines with other alternative sources of energy to create self-sufficient systems should also be simplified. The German Small Wind Association
(BVKW) and the World Wind Energy Association WWEA have valued New Energy Husum as a cooperation partner and venue for may years.
For some people a personal energy turnaround can start with a new job. The
“New Energy – New Work” job fair will be providing information about chances for career development opportunities in the renewable energy sector (17 March).
