The Asia Wind Energy Association (AsiaWEA) has been officially launched.
It has been formed by several industry executives from the wind energy sector in the continent.
It aims to become the leading organisation for the onshore and offshore wind industry in Asia-Pacific.
AsiaWEA will co-ordinate international policy, communications, research and analysis and will provide services to support members’ requirements and needs to help their development.
The association claims it has already received strong support from several leading stakeholders in the wind industry such as turbine suppliers, developers and investors.
Edgare Kerkwijk, one of the founders and board members of the association said: “Our mission is to establish and promote wind power as the solution to the region’s rapidly growing energy demand and environmental challenges, providing meaningful benefits to the region as a whole.”
