Third Quantum Leap in Wind (QLW) Workshop
Wind energy growth in Asia, with exception of China and India, has been weak. QLW 3 will focus on answering the question: “What will it take to accelerate wind development?” The workshop will use this as the anchor question while addressing all facets of wind energy projects in the Asian countries.
The two-day workshop will kick off with presentation of six case studies of wind energy projects in Asia. Presenters will discuss barriers, solutions to overcoming barriers and recommendations for changes to policies, tariffs, interconnection, permitting, land acquisition, financing and others.
The second day of the workshop will focus on status of wind development in 12 countries, and an expert panel on issues related to accelerating wind energy development.
Takeaway of Workshop Participants
The workshop will share lessons, best practices and recommendations in order to accelerate wind development. All facets of wind project development will be covered: Prospecting, Wind resource assessment, Siting/engineering, Turbine technology, financing, and others.
The workshop will provide opportunities to establish connections with potential clients, suppliers and financiers in order to facilitate transactions through extensive networking opportunities.
ADB is committed to increasing access to clean and affordable energy for people throughout the region. One of these is wind power, which is poised to simultaneously address the three challenges of energy security, climate change and access to energy for all.
The third QLW workshop will precede the seventh Asia Clean Energy Forum. Key players in the global and Asian wind industry, from sectors of finance, technology, project development, policy and regulation, shall gather to brainstorm and devise a roadmap for a quantum leap in wind in Asia.
