China Wind Power 2010, one of the top three wind power exhibitions in the world, opened in Beijing on October 13. The three-day event attracted more than 500 exhibitors from 23 countries, and featured the latest cutting-edge technology.
The event was organized by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA) and the Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA). Many of the world's leading firms in the business attended, including Vestas, Suzlon, Gamesa, Nordex, Repower, Siemens, GE and Sany.
"We hope to offer a great platform for experts, engineers and firms to share their newest development in this emerging industry," said Li Junfeng, secretary general of CREIA.
"China now ranks No.2 in total installed capacity in global wind power market. It is necessary to hold such big event to promote communication within the industry," he added.
Morel Jorge, a PhD Candidate from Japanese Kumamoto University, brought his latest research results. "I'm trying to figure out the relations between wind power generation, movement of wind power station platform and equipment load, and then developing software – a control system to reduce load in giant sea offshore wind power stations and produce more electricity," he said.
John Buckley, an official from the UK Trade & Investment ministry, participated in the expo along with 12 British firms. "We are searching for potential partners in China to co-explore wind power business in Britain," he explained.
