How is this done?
What a relief… to sit down at the same table with only other wind turbine owners. The best possible conditions to have, what the Global Head of O&M at Enel said about 2017: “A productive and transparent dialog between all of us”. If you are tired of sales pitches, then this is your event: only wind turbine owners & no sales pitches. This is your best oasis to have the true version of end-user experiences from the wind industry.  Feel free to explore which topics & models will be discussed, who has booked and evaluations from 2017
