UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will present 15 leading companies in the wind-energy sector during the EWEA 2014 trade show, in Barcelona (Spain), from 10 to 13 March 2014. The companies will be exhibiting on the 200m² French Pavilion, in co-operation with the Renewable Energies Trade Association of France (SER) and the French Wind Power Professionals Association (FEE) under the Windustry France banner.
France has a key role to play at a European and a global level with regard to wind energy, and can bring tangible added value to the sector. Figures for the period going from late 2013 to early 2014 show that wind-power capacity that is connected to the power grid, in France, amounted to 8,000MW. France’s goal is that, by 2020, nearly a quarter (i.e. 23%) of the country’s demand for energy will be met thanks to renewable-energy sources.
France ranks fourth in Europe in terms of installed capacity and electricity produced, and the offshore sector has the greatest potential for growth, with calls to tender already in progress. French manufacturers are, therefore, able to consider investing in a sector that will be competitive against its European rivals.
The vast number of initiatives launched by French regional players has contributed to the strong growth recorded by the French wind-power industry: Bourgogne Développement, the Conseil Régional de Picardie (Regional Council of Picardy) and Le Havre Développement will attend EWEA 2014 alongside companies from their respective regions.
The 200m² French Pavilion at EWEA 2014 (Hall 6, Stand 6C70-A) will showcase a range of leading French-based companies and other entities in the field of wind power. The trade show will take place from 10 to 13 March of this year in Barcelona (Spain). Visitors are invited to visit the stand on 10 March in order to meet the participants during an informal drinks reception.
The French Pavilion is being organized by UBIFRANCE in partnership with SER (Booth 6C70-A) and FEE (Booth 6C70-G), under the Windustry France banner (Booth 6C70-A). The participating companies are listed below; further information is available on request.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
