The program for Wind O&M Dallas 2017, the world’s foremost conference for global wind energy stakeholders, is today October 12, being launched by Wind Energy Update.
Taking place April 10-12, 2017, and with its most ambitious agenda and impressive speaker line-up yet, it marks a major turning point in the wind energy industry by helping executives achieve genuine wind park ROI and learn to maximize value from every single turbine collectively.
“In order to truly succeed in this industry, issues such as major power purchase investments from industrial giants, the explosion of independent service companies, advanced energy storage technology, the utility of data driven software, and more, demand a complete re-think.
“And, it’s for this reason that we’re proud to invite 600+ of the world’s top wind stakeholders, from right across the value chain, back to Dallas next spring for our most value added, business driven program ever,” says Kerr Jeferies, Project Director at Wind Energy Update.
All-new case studies, workshops, seminars, keynote panels and networking will ensure that attendees will leave with all the critical tools, insights and connections they need to protect the integrity and transform the productivity of their portfolio well into the future.
Powerful C-Level keynote addresses, from the likes of Patrick Woodson, Chairman, E.ON Climate & Renewables; Chris Brown, President, Vestas; Mark Albenze, CEO Siemens Wind Power & Renewables; Andy Holt, CEO Renewables, GE Renewable Energy; Tom Kiernan, CEO, AWEA and many more, will break new ground by raising the bar for the O&M industry’s imminent +$3Billion growth spurt.
While a good O&M strategy for wind energy will make or break the business case for a single turbine park, an innovative yet considered and well executed Asset Management approach will unlock expansive long-term economic opportunities for entire wind portfolios.
“We’re excited to be presenting a brand new ‘Asset & Risk Management Track’ to go alongside our premier ‘Rethink Reliability – The Core O&M Topics Track’ to ensure that asset value can be protected, nurtured and grown by asset managers chasing risk, revenue and reward as well as field technicians and engineering specialists can,” he explains.
Importantly, this annual gathering – which has enjoyed a 30% growth in attendee quality year-on-year since 2012 - provides the platform true leaders need to establish thought leadership, dominate market thinking and harness the collective strength of this truly exciting global market.
Major stakeholders from E.ON, Duke Energy, Pattern Energy, EDF Renewable Energy, SunEdison, Siemens, Goldwind, GE Renewable Energy and Vestas have already confirmed their attendance at this - the most important wind stakeholder meeting to hit Texas in years. NGC Transmission & Equipment, EDF Renewable Services and Tech Safety Lines have joined as Diamond, Silver and Bronze sponsors respectively.
“This annual gathering, above all others, continues to tap into the progressive business models that’ll secure the industry’s future, making it the can’t-miss event for all top energy decision makers,” concludes Victoria Auckland, Project Director at Wind Energy Update.
