Improved cooperation in the global wind sector  

On the occasion of the 5th World Wind Energy Conference taking place from 6-8 November 2006 in New Delhi/India, the International Association for Wind Engineering IAWE and the World Wind Energy Association WWEA signed today a Memorandum of Agreement on closer cooperation and coordination.

The signing was enacted by Prof. Giovanni Solari, President of IAWE, and Dr. Anil Kane, President of WWEA, during the General Assembly of WWEA in New Delhi. It underlines the importance both organisations attribute to multilateral activities with a focus on wind energy.

Prof. Giovanni Solari, President of the International Association for Wind Engineering: “žWind energy and wind engineering are vital and multidisciplinary fields, bursting out with manifold interests and aims, rich in expectations not only scientific and technical but, even more, human and social. The signature of a Memorandum of Agreement between WWEA and IAWE is a fundamental step forward towards the reciprocal spreading and sharing of the stimulating prospects deriving from focusing and solving together a wide set of problems of common interest, offering each other complementary tools and different viewpoints. Also on behalf of the wind engineering community, I feel proud of the opportunity of signing such a relevant document.”

Dr Anil Kane, President of the World Wind Energy Association: “žThe enormous growth of the wind sector worldwide reflects the need for intensified cooperation between all sectors that are involved in the wind industry: science, business, governments and civil society. We are very proud that we will have an intensified cooperation with such a recognised organisation as the IAWE which plays a leading role in wind engineering worldwide. Engineers, manufacturers and operators worldwide still have to tackle some major challenges to make wind technology even more efficient. We are convinced that the worldwide wind sector will benefit from the coordination which will result from our Memorandum of Agreement between IAWE and WWEA.”
