May 23 to 26, 2016 - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA


Today’s generation is more attuned to the economic and environmental benefits of renewable energy than ever before. Today, this high demand helps make the United States the #1 country in generating wind energy and delivering it to customers. Tomorrow, we keep pushing forward. Wind energy has a clear path to generate 20% U.S. wind energy by 2030 and will be a major solution as states implement the EPA Clean Power Plan.

We have an incredible opportunity to take our industry to the next level and WINDPOWER 2016 is where that happens. It’s where you generate business and where together, we generate actionable ideas. This is Generation Wind.

Wind power has emerged as an essential new energy dynamic, especially in light of the U.S. EPA Clean Power Plan. WINDPOWER 2016 puts you at the center of it all. Professionals from all over the world come here to network, learn and advance their organizational missions. Collaborate with colleagues and peers—innovators, thought leaders and policy makers—as you chart wind energy’s course into the future. Modern energy demands modern solutions and everything that propels wind energy forward is assembled here.
