Points of contact

The WAB Wind Energy Agency is the network of the wind energy industry in Germany’s northwest region and the national point of contact for the offshore wind industry. Its office has been based in Bremerhaven since 2002. WAB’s membership currently comprises more than 350 businesses and institutes in the entire value creation chain of the wind energy sector, from research and production to installation and maintenance.

WAB promotes the networking of its members and diverse information exchanges, initiates projects and research activities, and organises exhibition appearances, events and field trips for its members. Together with the Renewable Energy Hamburg (EEHH) cluster and the Wind Energy Network (WEN), WAB has set up the Offshore Wind Industry Alliance (OWIA) with an office in Berlin.

The industry get-together organised by the Bremerhaven Economic Development Agency (BIS) has become a popular regional meeting place for people involved in wind energy. It is held three times a year and offers the opportunity to network and enjoy interesting talks on current issues facing the industry.
