Jim Lanard, President, Offshore Wind Development Coalition (OffshoreWindDC)

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. As expected, Freshwater Wind 2010: Building the Successful Business Case for Offshore Wind Development in the Great Lakes will provide a rich opportunity for offline discussions where everyone has the chance to meet other players in the value chain to establish and strengthen strategic relationships.
