The Clean Energy Council has opened registrations today for the 2017 Wind Industry Forum, Australia’s leading technical event for wind power specialists.

Clean Energy Council Director of Large-Scale Energy Alicia Webb said next year’s event in Melbourne on 23 March will be the fourth time it has been held, and it continued to grow in scope and popularity.  

“Wind industry activity continues to grow as investment confidence returns behind the national Renewable Energy Target. The ambitious targets of forward-looking state governments are also providing momentum for the sector,” Ms Webb said.

“This will mean dozens of new projects which all need skilled professionals to deliver them. The Wind Industry Forum is a fantastic opportunity for Australia’s technical specialists in the industry to learn from the best in the business and ensure they are on top of all the latest developments.

“Whether you work in planning, noise monitoring, environmental compliance, wind measurement or electrical connections, there will be sessions that cover your area of expertise. The topic of grid integration is sure to be front and centre this year too, with increasing levels of renewable energy being added to the electricity system,” she said.  

The technical sessions at the Wind Industry Forum 2017 will run from 9am to 5pm and will be followed by networking drinks so that industry professionals can make new contacts and refresh existing relationships.

Ms Webb said all previous events had sold out and she encouraged people to book early given the increased interest in the industry.

“Book now to secure your seat and we will look forward to seeing you in March for another great event,” she said.
 
The Wind Industry Forum will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 23 March 2017 from 9am to 5pm. Full details of the program and registration details are available at cleanenergycouncil.org.au/wif.
