The world's foremost conference for global wind stakeholders, taking place in less than four weeks, from April 11-13 at the Westin Galleria Hotel in Dallas, Texas, will highlight a whole new approach to operations and maintenance (O&M).


The US continues to lead the world in wind energy production, however the viability of the business model is changing. Significantly, the supply chain has been over- turned by new Independent Service Providers; commercial and industrial giants such as Ikea, Google and Microsoft are procuring new projects; and new technologies are disrupting the current state of affairs.

"This forms that backdrop to the most important wind stakeholder meeting to hit Texas in years. The entire business case for wind hinges of having the best O&M approach."

"That is why no stakeholder in the wind space can afford to miss this premier event. Every major player and member of the supply chain will be there," says Kerr Jeferies, Project Director at Wind Energy Update.

A good O&M strategy for wind energy will make or break the business case for future investment. That is why this meeting has become a can't-miss-event for top decision-makers in the industry and technical specialists alike.

Wind O&M Dallas 2016 is the annual business gathering for the global wind industry's top executives to discuss what's happening, and why and how they are going to capitalize on the next big wind projects before they're gone.

More than 70 of the world's top O&M specialists and industry leaders have been handpicked to present real world owner case studies involving how they're going increase the value of wind energy production by eliminating project downtime, mitigating risk and optimizing overall AEP.

Ground breaking keynote addresses will challenge everything you thought you knew about the future of wind energy investment.

Keynote speakers include: Greg Wolf, President Commercial Portfolio, Duke Energy; David Smith, President, Leeward Energy; Chris Shugart, SVP Operations, Pattern Energy; Andy Holt, CEO NA Renewables, GE; Peter Wells, VP Services, Vestas; Keith Day, President, E.ON Energy Services; and Tom Kiernan, CEO, AWEA.

A record breaking 500+ key decision makers from the world's top wind stakeholders will be in attendance, including the likes of AES, Algonquin, Alliant, ABB, BP, CFE Mexico, E.ON, Duke, DWPA, EDF, EDPR, Gamesa, GDF Suez, GE, Google, Invenergy, JP Morgan, Leeward, Next Era, Oak Creek, Siemens, Suzlon, Sentient Science, RES Americas, Upwind, Vestas and many more.

"The strength of Wind O&M Dallas 2016 reflects the strength and development in this critical industry. It's going to be our first ever sell-out event and places are now limited. This is a last call to delegates to ensure they don't miss out," says Kerr.
