Co nowego w pomiarach i co nowego w turbinach? Jak sfinansować projekt wiatrowy, przewidzieć zyski i korzystnie sprzedać energię? Kilkudziesięciu uczestników seminarium 7 ma tę wiedzę z pierwszej ręki!

Przedstawiciele polskiej i niemieckiej branży energetyki wiatrowej spotkali się, aby dyskutować o tym, czym ich przemysł będzie żył w nadchodzących latach. Do owocnych obrad zachęcała industrialna atmosfera łódzkiego hotelu andel’s. W sumie wysłuchano sześciu wykładów, po których następowały panele dyskusyjne z udziałem ekspertów.
Uczestnicy podkreślali wysoki poziom merytoryczny i dobrą organizację wydarzenia. Poza sesjami wykładowymi, tematyka nowych trendów była obecna w licznych rozmowach kuluarowych, a także podczas tradycyjnego spotkania wieczornego, które tym razem uświetniła grupa jazzowa Zbig Band.
Translation - English
What's new in wind measurement, and what with wind turbines? How to go about financing a wind project, predict gains and make the most from your resources on the energy market? Dozens of participants in Seminar 7 have acquired this knowledge first hand!

Many of the movers and shakers of the Polish and German wind power industry met to discuss how the industry will evolve in the next few years. Andel's hotel in Łódź provided a unique, industrial climate just right for these discussions. A total of 6 lectures were given, followed by panel discussions with expert panellists.
The participants enjoyed their interactions with the highly knowledgeable and well-chosen guests and the organisation of the even went, of course, without any hitches. Aside from the lecture sessions, the theme of 'New Trends' was present in numerous interviews backstage, as well as during the traditional evening meeting, which this time was honoured by the swinging sounds of the Zbig Band.
The next wind academy seminar will take place next year, once again in and around the time of Global Wind Day. Check your calendar and save some free time for us - it'll be worth it!
Polish to English: Trącił mnie nosem / Touched by Nose
General field: Art/Literary
Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - Polish
Po co mam wracać do ciebie.

na ulicy
trącił mnie czarnym nosem
bezdomny włóczęga pies.

będzie ze mną chodził po świecie,
będziemy razem chodzić w gromadzie
bezdomnych psów,
chorych, parszywych,
będziemy chodzić drogami, lasami.

wieczorem
będę całować ich bezsilne łapy, brudne łby.
gdy będą zdychać, pomogę im,
gdy ja będę zdychać,
one mi pomogą.

Po co mam wracać do ciebie.


Anna Świrszczyńska
Translation - English
Why would I go back to you.

on the street
touched by nose
it was a tramp dog without a home.

he’ll wander round the world with me,
we’ll travel in a herd
of homeless dogs,
sick, bedraggled;
we’ll walk the roads and forests.

in the evening
I’ll kiss their strengthless paws & dirty foreheads,
when they've barked their last, I'll help them,
and when I’m all barked out, they’ll help me.

why should I go back to you.
