WEOnline2020 Conference of the Global Small Wind Network

The next conference of our partnership network is finally coming soon. The WEOnline2020 Conference will take place now on two weekends in November 2020 (21-22 and 28-29). Despite of the current circumstances the network enables therefore the opportunity for the small wind community to connect and create a space for knowledge exchanges. However, the conference will rather deviate from conventional scientific approaches to a new format. More information on the Winde Empowerment Website

This will take the form of a series of webinar sessions grouped by working groups themes: Education, Technology, Market assessment, Delivery Models and Measurement. Moreover, time will be dedicated to association focused discussions to talk about who we are and reinforce the link between members. One or several “hackathons” could be launched on the first weekend and would run during the in-between week. The results could be presented during the second conference weekend by the different teams. We are looking for hackathons challenges: if you want to propose a challenge, you can do it until November the 8th.

Their discord platform  will be the gathering place to chat and take “virtual coffees”, work for hackathons, talk between the sessions, etc.
