EWEA 2012 first ever event to be labelled WindMade

EWEA 2012 Conference & Exhibition in Copenhagen is the first event ever to be labelled by WindMade. The total electricity consumed at the event will be procured exclusively by wind power.

"EWEA is proud to be the organiser of the world's first WindMade event - run 100% on wind power," said Christian Kjaer, EWEA's CEO. "EWEA strives to make its events sustainable, and to promote wind energy not only through political lobbying but also by making direct use of wind power. EWEA is convinced that WindMade will drive investment into this technology, and we encourage other organsiations and events to follow our lead in becoming WindMade."

For an event to be WindMade labelled, it needs to procure 100% of its electricity footprint from renewable power. For EWEA2012, this includes the six month long event preparations at the EWEA offices, the power usage at the Bella Center and electricity used at the social events (receptions and conference dinner).

"Many conference organisers are already making efforts to 'green' their events, and WindMade is pleased to present them with a tool for having their commitment to renewable power certified by a credible label," said Henrik Kuffner, WindMade's CEO.

The WindMade events standard was developed following strong demand from conference organisers wishing to differentiate their events by showing their commitment to wind power. Under the WindMade Technical Standard, any kind of event could be labelled - from a theatre production to a trade fair, from a big sports event to a small conference.

Since the WindMade program only addresses electricity use, conference organisers are also encouraged to offset all other carbon emissions such as transport, heating and others.
