A hard core of wind energy companies -- including turbine builders Vestas, Enercon, Fuhrländer, Gamesa, and Nordex, gearbox suppliers Winergy and Hansen, and wind developer and financing company WPD -- dominated the wind section of Energy Hall 13 at the Hannover industry trade fair. Altogether some 85 wind industry companies occupied 2500 square metres of display space, nearly half the total 5500 square metres booked by renewable energy companies at the event. Around 230,000 visitors attended the fair, which ran during April 16-20. "The trade fair attracts well-informed visitors and provides an opportunity for the renewables sector to demonstrate its economic and political significance," comments Johannes Lackmann of the federal renewable energy association.
