During the research, the past delegates and our community of wind experts requested a mixture of detailed presentations from industry experts using real examples, mixed with opportunities for discussion and debate in the form of panels. There was a strong message from the industry that they wanted to hear the real sticking points for high level decision makers with budget holding responsibilities for wind farms.

The forum will address and deal with issues surrounding, the changing supply chain, the transition from OEM to in house maintenance, moving from reactive to predictive maintenance, coming out of warranty, using your big data effectively and dealing with workforce issues. The event programme is a reflection of research combined with your input as a speaker and our industry experts.
