About the Wind Industry working group
The Wind Industry working group – the VDMA network for suppliers and manufacturers in the wind energy sector – covers the entire value chain of producing wind energy plants.
Broad support
The VDMA helps wind industry enterprises to network and represents their interests with a broad range of services: from policy to market and engineering.
For more reliable wind turbine generators
The FVA-Nacelle project shows how partnerships of science and the industry in fundamental research can contribute to the success of the energy transition in Germany.
Strong expansion before the switch to tendering
With a net capacity of 1,892 megawatts in the first six months of the year, 2016 looks like being a good year for land-based wind energy expansion. This strong expansion is being driven by the allocation of suitable sites and priority areas in many federal states.
Rough sea ahead for offshore wind industry
The new Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) means troubled waters for the German offshore wind industry. A lower volume of project tenders means the German business base will be more costly and this will mean a loss of jobs. Grid expansion on land is necessary if the energy transition is to succeed.
