All eyes on Copenhagen as EWEA 2012 begins

- By Charlotte Stubben

The four-day conference and exhibition EWEA 2012 officially begins today.

The event is expected to attract at least 10,000 professionals intent on learning about wind turbine rotor length, green electricity production, supply chains, national and international grid systems, and climate change mitigation, the EWEA blog writes.

It also seems more than fitting that EWEA 2012 will be held in Denmark, a pioneer of modern wind energy and a major contributor to the European industry which by the end of last year had 93,957 MW of cumulative installed capacity — representing 10.5% of total EU power capacity, according to EWEA blog.
