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.

The leaves of the lotus flower, and other natural surfaces that repel water and dirt, have been the model for many types of engineered liquid-repelling surfaces. As slippery as these surfaces are, however, tiny water droplets still stick to them. Now, Penn State researchers have developed nano/micro-textured, highly slippery surfaces able to outperform these naturally inspired coatings, particularly when the water is a vapor or tiny droplets.
Enhancing the mobility of liquid droplets on rough surfaces could improve condensation heat transfer for power-plant heat exchangers, create more efficient...
Longer, more severe, and hotter droughts and a myriad of other threats, including diseases and more extensive and severe wildfires, are threatening to transform some of the world's temperate forests, a new study published in Science has found. Without informed management, some forests could convert to shrublands or grasslands within the coming decades.
