Wind power continues to lift the American economy. The industry closed 2017 strong, delivering 7,017 megawatts (MW) of new wind power capacity. That new capacity represents $11 billion in new private investment. There are now 89,077 MW of wind power installed across 41 states, enough to power 26 million American homes.

The wind industry is powering forward to continue growth into 2018 and beyond. WINDPOWER is where the industry comes together to plan for the future and keep this success story growing.  Join other wind industry leaders at the largest wind energy event in the Western Hemisphere. 


WINDPOWER 2018 Housing is in partnership with Orchid Events, LLC, the ONLY authorized housing provider for WINDPOWER.  The housing deadline is fast approaching!   Reserve your room now to avoid paying higher rates or having to stay outside of the city.  May is a busy time of year in Chicago so inventory will be low and rates will go up after April 10, 2018.
