What is A Word About Wind?
We're a wind finance and investment community who provide more than just news and insight: we help our members meet key influencers, make wise investment decisions, and grow their businesses.
Our email newsletters provide concise summaries of the most important news in wind, and are now read by over 3000 subscribers. Our publishing output is substantial: we publish 750+ articles a year, 100 + market commentaries, exclusive interviews and 6 + special reports, including our annual guide to the Top 100 Power People. We reach the inboxes of board directors and senior managers within world-leading renewables businesses. In government, our intelligence and insight is trusted by civil servants, policy makers and departmental chief executives.
Our members are high-level professionals who are often hard to reach through traditional publications, but thanks to years of relationship-building, ours is a voice they know and trust.
More than just news and insight
But we're about more than just publishing: we also host a year-round series of international events. Our flagship conference, Financing Wind London, is now in its sixth year. For 2018, we're excited to be launching its US equivalent, Financing Wind New York, reflecting both our international membership base and the increasing significance of the US wind market.
Each quarter, we also host an evening of networking for members. Please see our events page for more details.
