With new wind installations in the US forecast to slow down beyond the end of 2012, the onus for optimizing the performance of existing assets has increased. Developers are looking at shifting more resources towards the O&M side of their business, whilst for OEMs, a softening sales market is enhancing the need for maintaining exceptional after-sales services and performance.

The 4th Annual Optimizing Wind Power O&M conference returns as an interactive and intimate setting for addressing your critical operational challenges, with a keen focus on real experiences and enhancement of O&M strategy.

The agenda is designed around the key factors that can improve the operational performance of your projects:

•Are you involved with equipment that is coming out of warranty?
•Can you share your experiences with implementing a predictive approach to maintenance?
•Do you oversee a data analysis team that has achieved breakthroughs in advancing your wind asset management strategy?
•Is your company achieving improved reliability and reductions in down-time?
•Have you successfully conducted retrofits or repowering on older wind farms?

Confirmed speakers include:

•Brian Hayes, Executive Vice President, Asset Operations, EDP Renewables, North America
•Dan Brake, Technical Services General Manager, Renewables, NextEra Energy Resources
•Gerrud Wallaert, Regional Operations Manager, Midwest / Northeast, E.ON Climate and Renewables
•Jean Lemaire, Project Director, Akuo Energy
•Dave Magill, Senior Vice President, Asset Management, Competitive Power Ventures

•Ryan McGraw, Head of Asset Management, Orion Renewable Energy Group

•Gabriel Vaca, Director, Asset Management, NaturEner
•Valerie Peters, Wind Reliability Lead Analyst, Sandia National Laboratory

Join us this year to hear critical discussions on how to make rational decisions that reduce the cost of your operations, increase the power performance of your wind fleet, and make the business connections to achieve these aims.
