Wisconsin Wind Industry Supply Chain Workshop


Appleton, WI

This state-level seminar will focus on supply chain challenges and opportunities in the state of Wisconsin for companies looking to get involved in the supply of components and services to the wind energy industry.

This state-level event is designed to focus on specific aspects for Wisconsin-based companies and to enable their entrance into the wind industry.

The wind energy industry is experiencing unprecedented growth, which is bringing major supply chain challenges to the industry while it aggressively “ramps up” domestic manufacturing of wind turbines and their components.
