Doing Business in… US (3 May 2016, 3pm CEST)

The U.S. wind industry experienced its third most active year in history in 2015, installing 8,598 MW of new wind power capacity. On the heels of the multi-year extension of the Federal Production Tax Credits, increasing state renewable portfolio standards across the country, and a 66% reduction in the cost of wind since 2009, wind is poised to continue growing rapidly through the end of the decade. The emergence of a new customer segment – corporate and other non-utility buyers – further signifies growing interest in purchasing wind power. This webcast will explore U.S. wind power activity in 2015, focusing on the policy environment and the key industry players and customers driving the industry forward.
Attendees will learn about:

  • U.S. wind power activity in 2015
  • Footprint of the U.S. wind industry
  • Key U.S. wind industry players and customers
  • U.S. wind energy policy environment
