Siting and Environmental Compliance conference arrives next month- register today

While policy and manufacturing can at times dominate the headlines, those in-the-know understand the importance of siting and environmental compliance. A firm grasp of all the aspects involved with siting and compliance is a critical component for both individual wind projects and having the robust industry we all advocate for so strongly.

AWEA’s Wind Project Siting and Environmental Compliance conference is the place where industry leaders, experts and external stakeholders gather to learn from each other and discuss the most challenging issues of the day.

This March 22-23 in Charleston, SC, hear from program chairs Joan Heredia of Enel Green Power and Michael Speerschneider of EverPower.

The American Wind Wildlife Institute is participating this year, and will lead important discussions on minimizing environmental impacts. Attendees can also learn more about the Clean Power Plan, shifting regulatory landscapes and legal issues.

Don’t miss out- siting and environmental compliance is an increasingly important part of growing American wind energy, so make sure you’re ready with the most up-to-date strategies and resources.
