Press Release, August 01, 2014; Image: Hamburg Messe und Congress From 23-26 September 2014, WindEnergy Hamburg – the global trade show for the wind power sector – will take place for the first time. Across 65,000 square meters of exhibition floor space, more than 1,000 planners, manufacturers, suppliers, financers, operators, energy providers, and service providers will be presenting themselves from the onshore and offshore sectors along with R&D.Hamburg is not only an excellent venue for an international tradeshow, but also now a great location for the wind sector. WindEnergy Hamburg will show the strong international positioning of German suppliers and manufacturers – and how important a stable German market is towards that goal. With an export share of 67 percent and 10.67 billion euros of gross added value, the wind sector makes a major contribution to the German national economy.For this reason, a call to Berlin and Brussels will go out from Hamburg. Germany urgently needs a clear policy commitment in light of the increasing importance of renewables, growing global markets, and quickly developing opportunities. In Hamburg, the BWE will therefore reiterate its call for reliable industrial policy that takes account of these trends, creates fair markets in Europe, and ensures international market access.The German Wind Energy Association (Bundesverband WindEnergie) will be exhibiting in Hall A1, booth 308.
0Shares0000LONDON, England, December 26 – Welsh football chiefs are hoping to persuade Manchester United veteran Ryan Riggs to become national manager, replacing Gary Speed, who took his own life last month, media reports said Monday.The Welsh Football Association is set to make an approach next month, according to The Sun newspaper, which quoted a “Wales insider” as saying: “Ryan has never managed but he’s seen as a natural successor to Gary. At 38, he’s the right age to be on the same wavelength as our young team.” Wales’ next game is set to be a friendly on February 29 with Costa Rica as mooted opponents.Giggs is angling for another one-year contract at Old Trafford, which could mean any Welsh engagement would initially be part-time.The veteran has been with United for 23 years and extended his record of scoring in each campaign since the inception of the Premier League with his goal in Wednesday’s 5-0 thrashing of Fulham.United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has indicated that he believes Giggs has another year in him.“There is no evidence at this moment in time that his energy, stamina or speed are decreasing. In fact, it’s exactly the same as it was the last two or three years. It’s amazing.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
