On Friday, June 25th, at 1:00 in room 5120 of Grainger Hall, we will be joined by Paul Schechter from Horizon Wind, out of Houston, TX. Paul will talk about the growth of Horizon Wind, future expansion plans, relationships with suppliers, trends in the industry and what needs to be done to see wind grow even faster in the US and WI.
Paul is the second speaker in the Wind Energy Speaker Series, which is a product of the CleanTech Thought Leaders Series. Our focus this summer is on the manufacturing side of the large wind industry. WI has attracted a number of major manufacturers in the wind sector and we want to hear from those companies, understand what attracted them to WI and look at additional opportunities for the state in the future.
The Community Forums are sponsored by the Business, Environment & Social Responsibility Program at the WI School of Business and by the City of Sun Prairie Office of Economic Development.
We will meet in our regular room at 5120 Grainger Hall. The event is free and designed as much for community members as it is for students.
Please register below for Tom's talk beginning at 1:00 pm on June 18th. Each of the Friday sessions will conclude no later than 2:15.
Additional information is available from Tom Eggert at 608 267-2761 or firstname.lastname@example.org
