Meet the Policymakers, Utilities and Offtakers Driving a Giant Wave of Solar and Wind Projects
Your Best Chance to Evaluate the Growth Potential of Wind and Solar in the Midwest!
Improving economics and a favorable policy environment are driving an expected tripling of capacity in renewable energy in the Midwest, with solar anticipated to see 7 gigawatts of growth over the next 5 years and wind projects racing to capture the PTC.
However, the opportunities are not equally distributed across this vast region. Large renewable energy initiatives are ramping up in some surprising state and utility territories, but not all types of projects are likely to gain traction. At the same time, transmission and market constraints may bound the opportunities in some areas otherwise ripe for development, and the looming PTC expiration puts into doubt whether solar or wind will be more economical in the future. Only those who can truly assess the local incentives, market constraints and future economics will be able to capture the huge opportunities emerging in the Midwest.
Midwest Renewable Energy is the networking event where the entire Midwest renewable energy community gathers to get the latest insights into the market and to meet key players. It is your best chance to:
- Assess how state legislative and regulatory policy initiatives are driving renewable energy growth
- Meet utility, muni, co-op and corporate procurement managers
Explore how changing economics and the coming PTC expiration will affect solar and wind.
