An essential look at the European wind market

In 2016, we brought Financing Wind to Reed Smith’s offices in the City of London, for our fifth annual conference.

We invited 70+ of our members, from across the investment, legal, owner-operations and development sides of the wind industry, to share their views on the most pressing market issues – such as emerging markets and maximising returns. We heard from industry-leading figures, such as Wolfgang Bischoff, Head of Global Equity & Energy Finance at Siemens.

New connections were made during focussed networking sessions, and the diverse range of companies in attendance created unique relationship-building opportunities.

Companies that Attended

What happened?

We heard from European wind's most high-profile names

Our panel on new markets in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South America featured Steve Mandel of Denham Capital, Aaron Daniels of Modern Energy Management, Andrew Schmidt of ČEZ, and Jorge Calvet of Jenner Renewables. And because we didn't invite press, speakers were free to share insider insights.

Our membership base connected

There were plenty of opportunities for our members to grow their network of business contacts over networking breaks, lunch and drinks. Tickets were limited, so networking was highly focused.
We brought together a unique combination of companies, such as Deutsche Bank, Everoze and Ørsted.

We shared views on the market's biggest issues

We kick-started debates on some big industry questions: such as how developers and investors can maximise project returns at all stages of the project lifecycle.


The 2016 programme covered three central topics: financial trends, emerging markets, and maximising returns.
