3rd Solar & Wind Energy Conference
An opportunity for industry experts, policymakers and energy enthusiasts to come together and explore the vast potential of these energies.
Full Story

The trend of wind and solar energy is growing rapidly as more and more countries around the world are transitioning towards clean, renewable sources of energy. Wind and solar energy have become increasingly cost-competitive with traditional sources of energy, and they are seen as key components in the fight against climate change. There has been a significant increase in investment in wind and solar energy in recent years, as governments and businesses look to reduce their carbon footprint and meet sustainability targets. By end of 2021, total global wind power capacity rose to surpass 845 GW 2021 while the solar photovoltaics (PV) market maintained its record-breaking streak, with the largest annual capacity increase ever recorded and brought the cumulative global solar PV capacity to 942 GW. Wind and solar energy are also becoming more accessible to communities and households, with the development of smaller-scale wind and solar systems, such as residential solar panels and community wind turbines.

This upcoming conference is an exciting opportunity for industry experts, policymakers, and energy enthusiasts to come together and explore the vast potential of solar and wind energy. This event will provide a platform for attendees to learn about the latest advancements and innovations in renewable energy, as well as discuss the challenges and opportunities in the field. The conference will feature engaging national and international speakers, interactive discussions, and networking opportunities to foster collaboration and discussion. With an emphasis on finding practical solutions to help transition towards a more sustainable future, this conference is not to be missed. Join us in our quest to empower tomorrow through the power of the sun and wind.
