The main topics of the VGB Conference Digitalization in the Wind Industry, will deal with the reduction of installation and operating costs of wind power plants as well as the increase of operational safety and reliability. The more intensive use of digital systems will make it possible to implement necessary measures more efficiently.

The conference will mainly highlight the following topics in the field of digitalization:

  • Operation of wind power plants
  • Maintenance of wind power plants
  • Energy market

The program will allow enough time for detailed discussions and answers to your questions.

The conference is aimed at wind power plant operators and all persons and institutions directly or indirectly involved in the construction or operation of wind turbines.

We would be pleased to welcome you in Vienna to optimize the operation of wind power plants together with you.
