About Financing Wind

Financing Wind is the best way to meet the biggest players in wind energy.

Financing Wind is wind energy’s premier conference. We bring together the top clean energy financiers and investors and give them the network that they need in order to build better, more profitable, more sustainable, renewable energy projects.

Three reasons why you should attend:

  1. You'll learn from the industry's definitive voices.

    Some of our most significant past speakers include Lindsay McQuade - CEO, Scottish Power Renewables; Michael Hannibal - Partner, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners; Edward Northam - Senior Managing Director, Green Investment Group Limited, Macquarie Capital; Manahil Lakhmiri - Chief Technical Officer, Ocean Winds; Alexandra von Bernstorff - Managing Partner, Luxcara; Kirstine Damkjær, EKF.
  2. You'll make important contacts.

    Half of our members are director-level or above. We invite a diverse range of companies, and keep ticket numbers capped. That way, you know that networking will stay focused and helpful to your business.
  3. You'll get answers to the industry's most challenging questions

    Our editorial team are experts in the wind and finance sectors – so we know exactly how to ask the most relevant questions. And because we only book truly authoritative speakers, you can be sure you’ll get valuable answers.

About the Wind Investment Awards

The Wind Investment Awards celebrate best practice in the wind industry and help the sector and those working within it, to thrive. From the outset, the awards enable top industry players to forge strong business connections too.

Hosted in partnership with A Word About Wind, the awards bring together the industry’s top decision makers at a black-tie dinner where we meet, connect with, and celebrate the best people and companies working in the global wind market.

The inaugural awards ceremony took place on 31st October 2019 at St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London. The event attracted hundreds of entries and around 250 members attended, including many of the industry’s key players. Take a look at the 2019 winners here.  In 2019, the categories were judged by some of the biggest names in wind.
