UpWind Solutions was honored to be selected as one of the companies that Secretary of Energy Dr. Ernest Moniz visited at WINDPOWER 2015 in order to display our latest developments in wind farm O&M Excellence.

"We are counting on you being a huge part of the solution," said U.S. Secretary of Energy Dr. Ernest Moniz regarding wind energy to the audience at the opening ceremony of WINDPOWER 2015. This was a historic year for the conference as it was the first time in 15 years that the Secretary of Energy has made an appearance, shown support and a renewed commitment to wind energy.

The UpWind team is very excited to welcome wind industry experts to the leading Wind O&M and Safety Seminar in San Diego on January 15th and 16th. We are a local San Diego company with our new headquarters only a short distance from the seminar on Coronado Island and are proud to be chairing the annual AWEA event that features over 47 speakers across 15 sessions in a two day period. The event is fun, enlightening, and innovative. All attendees are sure to walk away with actionable wind farm operations and maintenance strategies that you can implement and begin benefitting from right away.

Tom Kiernan will be there to represent AWEA and discuss the future of O&M and its importance to the success of wind industry. The seminar will be kicked off by the program chairs Tom Kiernan, CEO of AWEA, Peter Wells, CEO of UpWind Solutions, and Gary Lee, Health and Safety Manager for EDP Renewables North America.  They will be discussing the most innovative O&M and safety best practices, new technology, and how we can shape the future of O&M in wind.
