The NAWEA/WindTech 2019 Conference will take place at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on October 14th–16th, 2019. This will be an opportunity for wind energy academics and researchers to discuss the Grand Vision for Wind Energy and its implications. Thought leaders from around the world will discuss the pivotal role wind energy will play in the transition from a system based primarily on fossil fuels to one primarily supported by renewable energy. The conference will focus on the challenges in wind energy science, as well as the economic, environmental and social policy aspects of this transition. It combines the longstanding North American Wind Energy Academy (NAWEA) Symposium and the International Conference on Future Technologies in Wind Energy (WindTech) and is developed in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the European Academy of Wind Energy.
