An Exchange with Wind Energy Experts from Lower Saxony

Texas and Lower Saxony are the leading wind energy states in the US and in Germany respectively. With the Federal Government's plan to increase Germany's offshore wind capacity to 15,000 MW by 2030, Lower Saxony expects further growth in its wind energy sector. In the US projects along the East coast dominate the offshore wind energy sector. However, there is potential in Texas as well, and already in 2005 the Texas Legislature enacted a law requiring Texas to increase the use of renewable energy.

This conference will bring together the German and American wind energy sector, in order to exchange knowledge, ideas and experiences, and to explore business opportunities in offshore wind in Texas and Lower Saxony.
