World Wind Energy Association

The WWEA promotes the use of wind energy worldwide through its efforts to improve communication among the wind energy industry, influence national and international policies, and provide avenues for international technology transfer. Its activities include sponsoring the World Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition, which was held in Berlin in early July. A short manifesto, "A Global Strategy for Wind Energy," was released during the conference and is available on the Web site.
