About the Global Markets Theatre

The move to renewable energy is gathering momentum across the globe – not just in Europe – and in recent years wind energy has led that charge. RWE, in cooperation with GWEC, is hosting the Global Markets Theatre in Hall 3. You will be able to hear market experts talk about new and emerging markets for wind, and network with potential future markets.

Sessions in the theatre will focus on key global markets, looking at the US and other key countries in the Americas, China and the Asia-Pacific region, a look at the situation in Africa and, of course, a session on the state of the market in Europe. There will also be a look at some central challenges for the industry, as well as a lookahead to COP27.

How to sustain the market growth after a record year in Latin America

The Global Wind Energy Council convenes the LATAM Task Force and works wind energy associations in the region to keep the industry abreast of the opportunities and challenges arising in one of the world’s most interesting wind regions. 2021, surprisingly, was a record year for growth in Latin America and this session provides a global overview for the region and takes a deeper look into what is happening on the ground in specific markets.

Moderator: Ramón Fiestas, President GWEC Latin America
