On 25th April 2019, we’re due to host our second Financing Wind North America conference in Denver (Colorado). There are some regular questions we hear when we talk to current and future members about this event, so we wanted to take a few minutes to answer six of the most important.


January 18, 2019

On 24th and 25th April 2019, we are due to host our second annual Financing Wind North America conference in Denver, Colorado.

We’re proud to host this conference in association with headline sponsor FTI Consulting; sponsors APB, Apex Clean Energy, Goldwind, KeyBanc Capital Market, Mayer Brown and Onyx InSight; and supporting organisations Luminate and Vibrant Clean Energy.

We’d love to see you there! And, to help you make the right decision to join us, here are six regular questions we’ve heard from current and future members about this event.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. All members are eligible for a place, and you can transfer your place to a colleague or client.

All of our corporate, platinum, gold and silver members are eligible to attend Financing Wind North America. However, if you aren’t able to join us in Denver yourself, please remember that you can transfer your place to a colleague or client. As we want you to be able to make full use of the opportunity, register yourself, a colleague or client.

2. Financing Wind attendees and speakers are senior people who focus on the financial side of the sector.

Our Financing Wind conferences are attended by top professionals with a focus on the financial side of the wind sector. These include senior people from banks, institutional investors, manufacturers, utilities, technical consultancies and law firms who want to discuss the big issues in the wind industry in an exclusive environment.

And what do we mean by ‘exclusive’? Well, typically we are looking to attract 200-300 people to each of our events, not the 1000s that pass through the doors of the major trade shows. This means our members can meet those they really want to in a focused setting.

4. …and you can see details of the agenda there too.

We want to make sure that our members can benefit from an event that focuses on the very latest shifts in North American wind. We’ve put a draft agenda up on the Financing Wind site, and we will keep this regularly updated until we get to conference day.

However, we know we will be discussing the most important issues in the market, including the impact of the end of the production tax credit; evolution in power purchase agreements; the nascent offshore wind market in North America; and innovations in project finance.

5. If you buy a ticket for Financing Wind North America, you get our newsletters and others events too…

If you aren’t yet a member of A Word About Wind, it will cost you $995 to attend Financing Wind North America as an individual. This is all detailed on the ticketing page of the our mini-site.

However, what you may not know is that for this price you’ll get all of the benefits of an AWAW membership for the whole year. And you will receive 150 market intelligence briefings through the year; priority access to all our premium content report launches; access to all our other events in the US; annual research call and editorial opportunities with our research analysts.

We care about keeping members informed about developments in wind, and believe this is a great editorial and events package.

6. …and, if you want to attend Financing Wind North America with colleagues, we offer group deals.

If you want to attend Financing Wind North America with colleagues it would make most financial sense to sign up for a gold or platinum membership package, where you get from three to five passes for each of our events in the US. Yes, they are a bit more than our silver membership, but you get a lot more for your money.

You can see membership packages on the main AWAW site.

Finally, we offer corporate memberships for companies that want to send even more people and get regular access to our analysts.

Investment expertise. High-quality events. Exclusive content. Lead generation.
