The AWEA Small and Community Wind Conference & Exhibition will unite wind industry leaders with economic development groups, municipalities, and consumers eager to play a bigger role in the use and expansion of wind energy and its economic potential. The conference is designed to foster networking and encourage strategic thinking for the use of small wind technology and community-owned wind. Attendees will learn the latest on national renewable energy legislation, technology costs, zoning requirements, utility interconnection, tax revenues and investment opportunities from small and community wind industry experts.
Two educational tracks and an exhibition hall full of the latest wind technology will show consumers, renewable energy professionals, dealers, and installers how best to capitalize on wind technology for homes, farms and ranches, businesses, and rural electric cooperatives. This event will show attendees ways to play a bigger role in the use and development of wind generated and used on-site and that it is not just an alternative, but a realistic opportunity to cut energy costs, cut carbon emissions, and make or save money.
The first AWEA Small and Community Wind Conference was held in Detroit in November 2009, and attracted over 2,100 attendees and over 100 exhibiting companies.
The 2010 Small and Community Wind Conference & Exhibition will be held from December 7-9, 2010, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon
