Wind Power Finance and Investment - Infocast Inc.

Meet the leading wind power developers,
investors, lenders, turbine suppliers, and offtakers.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This is an exciting time for the wind industry. Power prices are at historic highs and policy makers are pushing for more wind power development. Now with the extension of the PTC through 2007, the race is on to secure turbines, close financing, build projects and install record numbers of new megawatts.

There has never been more capital available for new projects?debt markets are deepening, ever more sophisticated tax equity structures are evolving, private equity is investing, bond markets are opening, and new players are stepping forward. Yet challenges remain: turbine shortages, escalating construction costs, financeable power purchase agreements, to name a few.

With this high-charged environment as the backdrop, the leading project developers, investors, lenders, and other key players will once again gather at the 5th Wind Power Finance & Investment ? the longest running wind power finance event and a major gathering place for the wind industry ? to share their perspectives on the latest innovations and developments in the wind power finance and investment markets and discuss what it takes to profit from the increasing flow of wind deals in 2006 and beyond.

The event also features the pre-conference workshop Negotiating Your Wind Project Financing. This informative pre-conference workshop will provide you an in-depth understanding of the key issues you will need to address when putting together your wind project financing agreements.

The event will take place at the Rancho Bernardo Inn?a classic California Spanish Mission style resort with plenty of outdoor patios and natural gardens?an ideal locale where you can set up private meetings offline with the industry?s key players and get deals done.
