WWEA, IWSA to Jointly Promote Wind Technology in Shipping

The World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) and the International Windship Association (IWSA) have joined forces to further promote the uptake of wind technology by the global shipping fleet.

As part of the partnership, the associations will facilitate an exchange of non-executive board members.

The WWEA will contribute with its experience in driving industry transition and taking advantage of the power of wind energy technology. The IWSA, in parallel, will continue to bring together all parties in the development of a wind-ship sector to shape industry and government attitudes and policies.

“Collaborating with the WWEA team on joint projects enables IWSA to accelerate uptake of this abundantly available, free-to-use energy source into the maritime sector,” Gavin Allwright, IWSA Secretary General, said.

“Shipping is certainly an area that will greatly benefit from the uptake of wind power and we look forward to working closely with IWSA to make that happen faster and at scale,” Stefan Gsänger, WWEA Secretary General, said.

The associations’ first collaborative steps will be taken during the UN Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP23) summit, taking place November 6 – 17 in Bonn, Germany.

Also during UNFCCC COP23, WWEA will support the “Ambition 1.5C: Global Shipping’s Action Plan” summit on November 13.
