Freshwater Wind Summit Planned for Cleveland

John Davis

Looks like LeBron James left Cleveland just a little too early, because he could have gone to the Infocast’s Freshwater Wind 2010 Summit, July 19-21.

Well, at least YOU won’t have to worry about him sitting in front of you at the Wyndham Cleveland at Playhouse Square and blocking your view of the event for talking about how to best develop offshore wind power in the Great Lakes:

. Meet the developers, equipment manufacturers, legislators, financiers and other key stakeholders shaping this new industry
. Learn how to position yourself to be a key player in manufacturing and supply
. Identify the development opportunities and technical risks associated with each opportunity
. Develop your profitable market entry strategy

Wind is the fastest-growing industry in North America, and the Great Lakes region offers some of the most reliable and strongest wind resources in the
world. This has led to proposed billion dollar projects and 100MW wind farms, some of the biggest ever in North America. Infocast’s Freshwater Wind 2010: Building the Successful Business Case for Offshore Wind Development in the Great Lakes will provide business solutions that will illuminate both the safe passages and the harboring shoals that could sink otherwise solid developments. The Summit is the place for major players to gather and advance offshore wind development throughout the Great Lakes region. Meet the leading developers, equipment manufacturers, legislators, financiers and key stakeholders as they carve out this new industry and build an economic hub for this nascent industry.

Keynote speakers will include US Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Ohio Governor Ted Strickland. You can find more information at the Infocast website.
