Today, wind turbine blade production is facing some key challenges; rising cost of materials and a downward pressure on turbine prices are making manufacturing high quality blades profitably extremely challenging, while the demand is growing fast. Developing cost-effective inspection and maintenance technologies for blades is another critical factor for minimising the LCoE. Our market insights and events can help you understand and overcome these challenges.

Wind Turbine Blades North America | 26– 27 September 2023 | Boston, MA, USA
There is an increased appetite for offshore turbines and therefore blades and the US market is set to be at the front of this charge. The rapid growth of wind power in North America is driving requirements for longer blades, particularly with the rise of offshore installations. Developing a local, secure and cost-effective supply chain to meet these demands is critical to support the booming industry.

Building on the success of our well-established international event in Europe, the Wind Turbine Blades North America event provides a focused platform for all players in the fast-growing industry to discuss market opportunities and challenges. Speakers will examine new developments in the manufacturing and performance of wind turbine blade materials, as well as the testing, maintenance and lifecycle management of finished products.

Key sessions:

  • Global Blade Market Overview and Outlook for Blade Demand in the US Market
    Session speakers include BloombergNEF, Business Network for Offshore Wind and AMI.
  • Developing a Local Supply Chain: Roadmap for Manufacturing Blades Locally
    Session speakers include Vestas America, Business Network for Offshore Wind, NYSERDA, US Department of Energy and NREL
