LINCOLN — Registration is now open for the 14th Annual Nebraska Wind & Solar Conference that will be held on Monday, November 8, and Tuesday, November 9, 2021, at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The conference is a two-day event bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders from Nebraska and across the country to share the latest information and innovations in wind and solar development. Past years’ conferences have seen over 300 attendees to hear from and network with wind and solar industry experts and leaders.
In addition to general sessions and workshops, the conference features a tradeshow with 35 to 40 exhibitors showcasing the latest advancements in technology and development. The tradeshow includes interactive and educational displays from exhibitors, including governmental agencies, nonprofits, and a wide range of professional service and product providers related to wind and solar development.
The conference planning committee consists of volunteers from state agencies, farmer and rancher organizations, public power utilities, the renewable energy industry, and academia working together to present accurate and objective information about all aspects of wind and solar development. Attendees include private sector developers, public officials, landowners, environmental and wildlife interests, public utilities, and the public at large.
“We look forward to holding an in-person conference this year,” said John Hansen, Conference Chair. “There has been tremendous progress in both wind and solar development the past two years. While our enormous wind and solar energy potential remains constant, state and national issues that impact renewable energy development are ever-changing. Our unique conference brings together top-notch speakers, outstanding exhibitors, and a diverse set of stakeholders to help us build the path forward for wind and solar energy development.”
Early bird registration is open now until October 8 and is $125. Registration through the end of October is $175. As of November 1, registration is $225 through the day of the conference. Student registration is discounted to $65 with a limited number of scholarships available.
