The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) is the national trade association for the U.S. wind industry. With thousands of wind industry members and wind policy advocates, AWEA promotes wind energy as a clean source of electricity for American consumers.
Join the wind industry's leading owners, project developers, wind assessors, and siting professionals in Austin, Texas for the annual AWEA Wind Resource & Project Energy Assessment. This technical event is the only one of its kind within North America. Accurate wind energy resource assessment is a critical factor in the developing successful wind projects. Attendees will participate in targeted networking sessions, exploring the industry's needs through presentations on new state-of-the-art techniques and technologies. As the conference concludes, attendees should expect to gain critical insight into the key matters by which the industry makes energy predictions.
