In a few weeks, the leading minds in the wind energy industry will converge on London to hash out new strategies for global supply chain management.

The event – which will be attended by representatives from the EU Parliament, the Crown Estate, and Siemens, among many others – will address the rapidly changing priorities of sustainable wind technology.

It’s a welcome moment of leadership for an industry that has found itself beleaguered in the UK especially due to a recent government emphasis on solar power

Yet the wind energy industry has a strong hand to play, with costs being steadily pushed down and new technology improving output.  It’s a sustainable solution to energy woes with the potential to transform the global supply chain.

Intelligent risk management and streamlined production methods will go a long way towards securing the industry’s promise.  With recent findings showing strong ties between sustainability and effective supply chain management, the meeting is an important step towards assuring a safe, clean, and connected environment.

Accelerating sophistication in wind turbines also means the need for new procurement and delivery solutions.  Offshore wind projects are being pushed into deeper and deeper waters, making the supply chain tenuous under current methods.

Hopefully, these and other efforts will lead to novel solutions for a transformed wind industry.
