Despite the gyrations experienced by the industry due to Washington gridlock and surprisingly low natural gas prices, the wind sector is still attracting new entrants and new sources of capital.
Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Infocast’s highly acclaimed annual Wind Power Finance & Investment Summit on February 5-7, 2013 returns to the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, CA. This timely event takes place as the wind industry ended the year with record installed capacity, as the wind power project developers race to complete their projects before the impending expiration of the federal Production Tax Credit (PTC) at the end of 2012.
The wind industry has been joined by Congressmen from both parties, veterans and governors of at least 23 states in lobbying for a four-year extension, which it argues will provide the certainty needed to continue growing wind power in the United States.
Despite the gyrations experienced by the industry due to Washington gridlock and surprisingly low natural gas prices, the wind sector is still attracting new entrants and new sources of capital. The 2013 edition of the meeting includes an impressive roster of wind power project players such as ACCIONA Energy North America, AIG, Atlantic Power, Blackrock Alternative Investments, Carlyle Group, D.E. Shaw & Co., EDF Renewables Energy, ENEL Green Power North America, Everpower, First Wind, GE EFS, Hudson Clean Energy Partners, Iberdrola Renewables, Invenergy, juwi Wind, Oak Creek Holdings, Pattern Energy, and Prudential Capital Group, among many others. Active wind power project developers, financiers, private equity investors, institutional investors, tax equity investors, lenders and equipment manufacturers will gather in San Diego, as they do every year, to discuss strategies for dealing with various challenges and prospects for 2013 and beyond.
