Covid-19 lockdown pushes WindEnergy Hamburg back to December

07 May 2020

Originally scheduled for 22–25 September, the biennial WindEnergy Hamburg conference has been postponed to 1–4 December, with travel restrictions and uncertainty triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic making the event untenable in the current climate.

“Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH (HMC) is postponing WindEnergy Hamburg 2020 because of the Coronavirus pandemic and its global impact on major events and international travelling,” announced co-organisers HMC.

“HMC is in constant communication with the responsible health authorities to jointly assess the situation,” the group continued. “Comprehensive health protection measures appropriate for the given conditions will be taken and announced publicly in a timely manner for the rescheduled WindEnergy Hamburg in December 2020.”

The event will aim to bring together more than 35,000 visitors, from more than 100 countries, to discuss the future of onshore and offshore wind power. This year’s event prioritises “audience engagement and interactivity”, scrapping parallel sessions in favour of a more streamlined structure, and includes discussions on the impacts of the clean energy transition on both people and global business interests.
