AWEA cancels CLEANPOWER 2020 due to COVID-19

4/06/20
The first annual CLEANPOWER Conference and Exhibition is cancelled due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic.
 
Washington D.C. – The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) today announced that the CLEANPOWER 2020 Conference & Exhibition scheduled for June 1-4 in Denver has been canceled.
 
COVID-19 government imposed physical and legal impediments including quarantines, stay-at-home orders, travel restrictions, and concerns over the well-being and safety of all attendees, exhibitors and staff, result in the need to cancel CLEANPOWER 2020.
 
“The health and safety of our attendees, our staff and our communities are of utmost importance,” said Jana Adams, AWEA Senior Vice President for Member Value and Experience. “We understand this news will be a disappointment to those across the utility-scale renewable industry, and while we share that disappointment, it is very encouraging to see so many exhibitors transferring their support to 2021. We are expecting a terrific inaugural CLEANPOWER June 7 – 10, 2021, in Indianapolis!”
 
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information on virtual educational and networking opportunities that will take place throughout the spring.
