Wind Farms 2013
Harnessing Australia’s wind potential
27 – 30 May 2013 — Bayview Eden, Melbourne
After some initial turbulence in the renewable energy market in light of the Renewable Energy Target Review, many developers are now seeing some real opportunity in commercialising wind farm projects as the 20/20/20 target remains unchanged.
Despite a challenge in obtaining project finance and off-take agreements, the industry is well placed to meet the 20/20/20 target, with the Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics reporting 16 projects that have already been approved at various stages of development and construction and a further 76 Projects pending approval.
IQPC’s 4th Annual Wind Farms 2013 Event will be the perfect opportunity to cement key partnership and unlock Australia’s wind energy potential. The event has been designed to bring together Wind Farm Operators, Wind Farm Developers, Government, Retailers, Transmission & Distribution Business’ and Solutions Providers to address key strategies around:
