Visions - Summer 2009 - 4

(continued) The international partners that SCOA spotlighted in its exhibit were Hyunjin Materials Co., Ltd. of South Korea, Samhyun Engineering Co., of South Korea, Kimura Chuzosho Co., Ltd. of Japan, and Yonghyun Base Materials Co., Ltd. of South Korea. In addition to SCOA, exhibitors from 48 states, and representatives from all 50 states and from 70 countries were present at the conference, numbers that left the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) with positive impressions of where the industry is heading. “The size and breadth of this show are a clear indicator that the wind energy industry is a hub of business activity even in this hesitant economy,” said AWEA CEO Denise Bode. “What we heard loud and clear from the industry assembled here in Chicago was a call to enact a national Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) to secure a stable and growing market for renewable energy.” . A poll released by AWEA at the conference showed that over 75% of Americans, including 71% of independents and 62% of Republicans, support an RES requiring that 25% of the nation’s electricity be generated from renewable energy by 2025. Ninomiya reported that SCOA gained attention from many OEM’s and other manufacturers interested in component supply. “We did get inquiries from companies and we are currently working to get a contract, and in addition, SCOA has been recognized as a supporter of renewable energy in the U.S.” “Our cocktail reception was a great success,” said Ninomiya,“This was a chance to introduce ourselves to top management of the OEMs based not only in U.S., but also in European countries such as Spain, Germany, etc.” Addressing the conference were five U.S. governors (Governors Chet Culver of Iowa, Jim Doyle of 4 visions Summer 2009 Wisconsin, Jennifer Granholm of Michigan, Pat Quinn of Illinois, and Ted Strickland of Ohio) The Governors of Kansas and Pennsylvania were also present, reflecting that states and their offices of economic development are competing to attract wind turbine supply chain companies and create good jobs. At least 19 state or regional economic development offices were exhibitors this year. Additionally, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Energy Secretary Steven Chu (via a taped speech) and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Jon Wellinghoff also addressed the conference. Secretary Salazar pointed to new rules for offshore wind farms that open the way for the U.S. to become a leader in offshore wind power. Both noted the value of a national Renewable Electricity Standard in creating jobs, helping hold down costs for consumers, and diversifying the nation’s electricity portfolio. “At no time in our history has the time for a new energy policy been so urgent.This is an opportunity that Americans cannot afford to miss,” said Secretary Salazar. Next year’s WINDPOWER 2010 Conference & Exhibition will take place May 23-26 in Dallas,Texas, and SCOA looks forward to showing its progress in the international market of wind power. “I think it was a great success,” Ninomiya said. “Now the wind energy market has recognized our name and the value that we can provide to the market to help this industry grow.” For more information, please contact Hideyuki Ninomiya at hideyuki.ninomiya@sumitomocorp.com
