Website visit Address Virtual event Start May 19, 2020 - 9:00 am End May 19, 2020 -3:20 pm

Digitalisation priorities in the wind sector are being redefined from collection, to innovation. As the cost of wind energy continues to fall and with the EU looking to increase their renewable energy capacity targets by over 50%, it is more important than ever for the wind industry to unlock their vast data sets and become global leaders in the digital space.

 Smart Wind looks to find out the latest digital developments from owner-operators, OEMs and data strategy experts from the largest and most innovative companies operating in Europe.
