Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) welcomed the Hellenic Wind Energy Association (HWEA) as a new member of its circle of members promoting wind energy. HWEA, known in Greek as Eletaen, was founded in 1990 by 50 wind energy pioneers including Arthouros Zervos, Dimitris Lalas and Ioannis Tsipouridis.

Today, HWEA’s membership boasts over 400 wind energy professionals and companies including engineers, scientists, lawyers, financiers and producers, developers, resource assessment companies, and contractors, the report said.
