Mexico WindPower 2014 will run on 100% wind energy




Mexico WindPower 2014, taking place in Mexico City on 26-27 February, will cover 100% of its power consumption by wind energy and be labeled by WindMade. The event represents the most anticipated gathering of key players from within the wind power industry to discuss latest trends and business solutions in the Mexican wind market.

The WindMade label enables businesses and event organizers to communicate their commitment to renewable energy to their stakeholders and consumers. The non-profit organization behind the WindMade label only awards the certificate to events that draw their power exclusively from renewable energy sources.

“We are pleased that the WindMade label allows us to ‘walk the talk’, and ensure that we support the transition towards a renewable energy future in every way that we can,” said Steve Sawyer, Secretary General of GWEC.

In order to qualify for the WindMade label, an event must be 100% powered by renewable electricity, the largest share of which must come from wind power. For Mexico WindPower 2014, this includes the preparation of the event, the power consumption by exhibition and conference, and also the receptions and dinners that are part of the event.

"We are proud for Mexico WindPower to carry the WindMade label and for it to spread the message that wind power has become the technology of choice for many electricity users. This includes event organisers, but also large and small companies from a great variety of sectors," said WindMade's CEO Henrik Kuffner.

Mexico WindPower is jointly organised by the Mexican Wind Energy Association (AMDEE), Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and E.J. Krause.
