The fifth Nebraska Wind Conference will be held October 22-23 in Lincoln at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel, according to the Nebraska Wind Conference Committee.

It will include national and state keynote speakers as well as multiple "educational tracks" applicable for utilities, suppliers, landowners, economic development officials, students, environmentalists, and anyone who has an interest in the wind industry in Nebraska.
The Conference Committee includes members from state agencies, Nebraska utilities, the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, farm and ranch organizations, and private entities to help develop the state's wind resources. This year's theme is "United and strategic in advancing the Wind Industry of Nebraska."
The Conference Committee is co-chaired by John Hansen of the Nebraska Farmers Union and Dan McGuire, Facilitator for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Wind Powering America's "Wind for Schools" program in Nebraska, and Adam Herink of Bluestem LLC.
