Thank you to all who participated in the 2nd Annual Wind Power Mexico 2012, part of the Mexican International Renewable Energy Congress

Wind Power Mexico 2012 was an exciting and timely congress that allowed the burgeoning Mexican wind industry to meet together to chart the future of this promising market. Having sold out of delegate places, sponsorship places, exhibition space and workshop attendee slots, the 2013 conference will be larger in every way to accommodate all those who wish to take part.

With discussions on the true potential of the export market and how to make it a commercially beneficial reality as well as many other, critical issues.
