Wind is the talk of the town. It has become especially relevant to the power transmission community where bearings, gears, couplings, motors and gearboxes are providing the equipment for this thriving alternative energy industry. It comes as no surprise that the Windpower 2009 Conference and Exhibition, arriving in Chicago from May 4âÂ€“7, will be the largest gathering of wind energy professionals and technologies to date.
Coming off of a stellar 2017 for the wind power industry, Wind Power 2018 is all about carrying that momentum forward.
After a sluggish 2013, annual installations of new wind turbines grew by 44% in 2014, according to the Global Wind Energy Council.

Three upcoming shows cater to different areas of power transmission components and motion control technologies, including Windpower 2016, Powdermet 2016 and the Sensors Expo & Conference. All three exhibitions will offer the latest products, solutions and latest real world applications dedicated to wind energy, powder metal technologies and sensors. HereâÂ€™s a quick rundown:
