Having a booth at the Wind Expo turned out to be a good decision. Windplanner was part of the Holland Pavilion, organized by the HHWE. Our team had many interesting talks, both with Japanese visitors as well as international companies and potential partners.
Japan has high ambitions towards wind energy; growing from <2% today to 20% in 2050. In order to reach this goal, Japan plans a considerable percentage of their wind turbines to be near shore. As the effect of wind mills can easily be visualized with Windplanner – both on land and near shore – there are good opportunities in the Japanese market.
Ernest, Henk, Sarah and Maarten immersed themselves in exciting Tokyo. For all of them, it was the first time to set foot in Japan. So next to the three intense days at the Wind Expo, they also spent a couple of days as tourists. All in all, it was a great trip, fully loaded with new experiences, insights, and contacts.
