Texas-size event for American Wind Energy Association conference

They say things are bigger in Texas and this year's wind industry trade show was no exception. As many as 776 exhibitors filled the quarter-mile long exhibition hall at Houston's George R Brown Convention Center, up a whopping 84% over the 420 companies in 2007, itself a record year. Some individual exhibitors also took the opportunity to go big. Acciona Energy from Spain brought along its new 3 MW turbine, while home-grown Clipper Windpower displayed its 2.5 MW Liberty machine. One of the biggest exhibits, a set of Vestas blades atop a Lone Star Transportation flatbed truck, did not even make it inside, remaining parked on the street alongside the conference centre for the duration.
