Wind Power Finance & Investment Summit

February 6 to 8, 2018 - San Diego, California, USA

Wind Power Finance & Investment Summit

The Leading Networking and Deal-Making Event of the Year for the Wind Industry!

The Wind Power Finance & Investment Summit is widely recognized as the leading gathering place for wind industry deal-makers. What one attendee calls the “highest quality of industry participants on the conference circuit.” Each year, the industry’s leading developers, investors, lenders, turbine suppliers, EPCs and other players gather to gain valuable insights into industry trends, get the latest market update on the finance and investment landscape and efficiently schedule rounds of private meetings.

The Summit attracted over 500 people in 2017 and, with the PTC continuing to fuel industry activity, the 2018 Summit will again offer up the best available opportunity to stay ahead of the market, meet the industry’s leading players and get deals done.

Now entering its 15th year, this sell-out Summit is moving to a NEW venue to meet the needs of its increased audience!

Join us at the five star Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, nestled among 400 lush garden acres near the beach in Carlsbad, featuring re-designed guestrooms and suites, expanded event spaces, an award winning spa and championship golf.
