Second International Wind Energy Symposium in Lima, Peru

As one key activity for active exchange, WISIONS supported the second symposium for small-scale wind technology in Lima, Peru within its regional partnership WindWorks.

The three-day symposium was held from 20-22 November 2013 and was organized by Green Empowerment and Soluciones Prácticas. It intended to facilitate the exchange on small wind turbines in Latin America.

Existing technologies (commercially available systems as well as self-constructed approaches), successfully implemented projects, challenges faced as well as preliminary outcomes and lessons learned by the partnership were presented and discussed. Over 100 participants attended, coming from governments, private businesses, multi and bi-lateral institutions, NGOs, and more to share their experiences.
