AUGUSTA, Maine — A trade delegation from Maine leaves today for a mission to Germany and Spain that seeks to bolster the state’s wind power industry.
Twenty-three businesses and individuals are participating in the trip. Stops include Madrid and Zaragoza, Spain, and Bremen and Bremerhaven, both in Germany.
The International Trade Center, the trip’s sponsor, says Europe is aggressive on investing in wind energy. Maine, meanwhile, is home to more than 95 percent of installed wind power in New England.
Trade mission participants include Maine companies that build, supply and provide logistics for wind projects. During the trip, the delegation will have a chance to attend southern Europe’s largest wind energy trade show in Spain.
