The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) says the Wind Resource & Project Energy Assessment Conference and Wind Project Siting and Environmental Conference will be held virtually this September.
AWEA is focused on reconstructing these events to create a valuable online experience. Participants will have available live presentations, on-demand sessions, one on one networking and shared social experiences.
“We have heard from our siting and resource assessment attendees, exhibitors, speakers and other AWEA event stakeholders that they are ready to come together for these important industry events, but that in person is not the best option at this time,” says Stefanie Brown, vice president of education and conferences at AWEA.
“Both virtual summits will allow timely and critical programming, business development tools and opportunities to connect with others over the emerging and prominent topics in project siting, environmental compliance and resource assessment,” she adds.
AWEA continues to evaluate its remaining 2020 events and will proceed with the appropriate plan based on current conditions, local guidelines and potential travel restrictions.
The health, well-being and safety of attendees, staff and community remain the organization’s top priority.
