We founded A Word About Wind in 2012 because we wanted to empower people in the wind industry to build a cleaner and fairer world. We owe that to current and future generations.
A Word About Wind is the world’s biggest community for people working on the financial side of the global wind industry.
We help people in our 6,500-strong community to grow their businesses in two main ways.
First, we run events that let them hear from the key players in the global wind industry and build their networks; and second, we publish over 100 email briefings each year to help them make better business decisions, along with reports and bespoke research projects.
We are proud to count some of the biggest names and key players in wind energy amongst our members.
Our community has its strongest presence in Europe and the US, but is spread all around the world.
More than half of our community members are head of department, director or C-suite.
