The second annual WIndiana conference opens tomorrow (21 July) at the Indianapolis Convention Center. The two-day conference focuses on wind resources in Indiana for both utility level wind development, urban or smaller wind power, helping Indiana manufacturers enter or expand their presence in the wind industry supply chain, and what the future holds for the wind industry in the state.
WIndiana is hosted by the Indiana Office of Energy Development and Purdue Discovery Park for the Indiana Wind Working Group. Some 600 people are expected to attend the conference. The exhibition area includes over 50 exhibitors from a variety of vendors and organizations from across the country. On the second day of the conference, attendees can take a bus tour of the Fowler Ridge Wind Farm in Benton County, or tour the small wind facility that has just been installed at the Normandy Barn located on the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.
