On the right track towards no-fuel energy
Wind energy has come of age and in the new energy paradigm it has developed into a mainstream source of renewable power. Uncertain and volatile oil and gas prices, concern about fuel import dependency, security of oil and gas supplies, depleting fuel resources and the global peak in oil production, as well as a growing environmental awareness and responsiveness, have fuelled this development.
The rapid progress made in wind energy technology in recent years has its corollary of growing technical diversity and complexity in the industry resulting in an increasing demand for qualified personnel.

European Capital of Culture – RUHR.2010
Comprising 53 cities and 5.3 million inhabitants, the Ruhr is the third largest urban agglomeration in Western Europe. Throughout 2010 the region that was once dominated by the coal and steel industry will proudly present both its cultural heritage and the unique success story of its transformation into a dynamic and exciting polycentric metropolis – home of 19 universities, 100 concert houses, 120 theatres and over 200 museums and festivals.
Pits and blast furnaces, symbols of the regions identity, have become economically irrelevant many years ago. Essen's Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex for instance has been turned into a most fascinating industrial monument, serving many cultural purposes and amongst many other things accomodating a design centre of international reputation. Zollverein has been inscribed into the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites and is one of the anchor points of the European Route of Industrial Heritage. Unsurprisingly it was also chosen as the venue for the Grand Opening of RUHR.2010.
RUHR.2010 – Essen and the Ruhr has never been more attractive and inviting. Throughout 2010 more than 300 cultural projects and 2,500 events are waiting for you. Why not extend your next stay at Haus der Technik – HDT and explore this amazing variety?
