THE HISTORY OF HUSUM WIND

– FROM THE FIRST HUSUM WIND ENERGY DAYS TO NOW

The first “Husum Wind Energy Days” took place in a livestock auction hall in 1989, back when hardly anyone anywhere in the world was taking wind energy seriously as an economic factor.

It soon became obvious that this town on the windy North Sea had the potential to become a leading exhibition centre, and not just for the wind industry. A new exhibition hall was completed in 1997, and its infrastructure was constantly improved over the following years.
