The wind industry was founded by visionaries and continues to embody an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. And the industry has always recognized the value of working together with partners that help drive our agenda forward. As we move toward the 2020s, wind energy will continue to thrive through collaboration with technology, other sources of clean and traditional energy, policy makers, innovators, farmers and ranchers, rural communities, big cities, and the list goes on.

Building on the WIND+ theme for 2019, WINDPOWER provides a variety of educational opportunities including:

Education Stations: 

Five education stations are located on the exhibition floor for convenient learning opportunities for attendees and exhibitors alike, including:
