The aim of the participating French-based groups and SMEs is to showcase their expertise in what is a growing industry, and to meet decision-makers from all over the world on the French Pavilion (Hall A, Booths E20, E30 and F20) at EWEA. The trade show is taking place between 4 and 7 February of this year in the Austrian capital.
In 2012, Europe exceeded the 100,000-MW mark in terms of power generated by wind turbines: this represented close to 7% of Europe's overall electricity consumption. Several countries have announced massive development plans for the 2013-2020 period, with Denmark (6,000 MW to be installed), Germany (50,000 MW) and Spain (40,000 MW) in the lead. These three countries have historically been at the forefront of wind-energy technology in Europe.
In France, wind-power generation that is fully connected to the grid, at 1 January 2013, exceeded 7,000 MW. France aims to supply 23% of the overall energy consumed domestically from renewable sources by 2020. For wind energy, this represents an installed capacity of 25,000 MW, made up of 19,000 MW on shore and 6,000 MW off shore. Thus, wind power alone is set to supply over 10% of France's electricity consumption by 2020.
Thanks to a host of initiatives from various regional players, the French wind-energy industry is expanding fast. Institutions such as Bourgogne Développement, Somme Développement, the Regional Council of Picardy, the International Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Picardy, the University of Picardy, and Le Havre Développement will be attending EWEA 2013 in support of their region's businesses in the wind-energy sector.

University of Würzburg physicists have succeeded in creating a new type of laser.
Its operation principle is completely different from conventional devices, which opens up the possibility of a significantly reduced energy input requirement. The researchers report their work in the current issue of Nature.

Innsbruck physicists led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller experimentally gained a deep insight into the nature of quantum mechanical phase transitions.
They are the first scientists that simulated the competition between two rival dynamical processes at a novel type of transition between two quantum mechanical orders. They have published the results of their work in the journal Nature Physics.

Researchers have shown that, by using global positioning systems (GPS) to measure ground deformation caused by a large underwater earthquake, they can provide accurate warning of the resulting tsunami in just a few minutes after the earthquake onset.
For the devastating Japan 2011 event, the team reveals that the analysis of the GPS data and issue of a detailed tsunami alert would have taken no more than three minutes. The results are published on 17 May in Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, an open access journal of ...
A new study of glaciers worldwide using observations from two NASA satellites has helped resolve differences in estimates of how fast glaciers are disappearing and contributing to sea level rise.
The new research found glaciers outside of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, repositories of 1 percent of all land ice, lost an average of 571 trillion pounds (259 trillion kilograms) of mass every year during the six-year study period, making the oceans rise 0.03 inches (0.7 mm) per year. ...
About 99% of the world’s land ice is stored in the huge ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland, while only 1% is contained in glaciers.
However, the meltwater of glaciers contributed almost as much to the rise in sea level in the period 2003 to 2009 as the two ice sheets: about one third. This is one of the results of an international study with the involvement of geographers from the University of Zurich.
