Vestas at World Economic Forum to “Shape the Post-Crisis World”

Vestas will be present at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland on 28-31 January 2009 to engage in debates concerning climate change, energy security and job creation opportunities  All of which, the wind power business offers and provides strong and compelling solutions for. Ditlev Engel, President and CEO of Vestas Wind Systems A/S, and Peter C. Brun, Senior Vice President of Vestas’ Group Government Relations, will represent Vestas at the Energy Summit & Energy Board Room Programme.

Vestas has now been a member of the World Economic Forum for a little more than one year. Since the last summit, Vestas has engaged with other members to discuss important global macro trends such as the significant growth of renewables, climate change, water scarcity and energy dependency in various WEF meetings and summits. Vestas has also participated in the Global Agenda Council together with 700 thought leaders to brainstorm and discuss global risk and challenges under the overarching theme: “Shaping the Post-Crisis World”.

“Vestas has engaged actively in the activities of the World Economic Forum to discuss and demonstrate with its 30 years of experience how wind power can contribute to fight climate change, improve energy ecurity and create many new clean energy jobs in many markets around the world,” says Peter C. Brun, and he continues: “Many forum participants, including members of government and energy
business partners have shown great interest in wind power as a mature clean
energy solution and how this technology can be integrated in larger scale in the
power mix.”

“At this year’s World Economic Forum, renewables and wind power will be discussed explicitly for the first time in various panels and meeting. This is only natural after the European Union approved its ambitious climate and renewables package in December 2008 and the new American administration is preparing its new energy economy initiatives,” ends Peter C. Brun.
