Heading to AWEA WindPower Conference Next Week

I've been invited back to blog at the American Wind Energy Association's annual conference. This year it's in Chicago and they're expecting 15,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibitors, so it'll be massive.

If you're going to be there too, leave a comment and let me know your booth number and/or Twitter handle! I'll be live blogging and Tweeting May 5-7 (Twitter: @mariaenergia).

I really like your site and wanted to see if there was any way to have my site,, listed on your list of links as a source for your visitors to use to search for jobs specifically in the Clean / Renewable Energy sector. The CleanTech sector is exploding and we want to help fuel that growth for the sake of everyone!
The benefits to your visitors would be:
• We have job listings from the largest companies in the CleanTech sector such as NextEraEnergy (largest producer of Wind), POET (largest producer of BioFuels), Xunlight and SunPower (leading Solar providers). We also have many startups and multinationals such as General Electric, British Petroleum, etc.
• We average more than 500 posted and active job openings per day. This is significantly more than ANY other Clean Technology Job Board in the U.S.
• Our site is getting thousands of “hits” per day from Job Seekers. We send those who opt-in for Job Alerts, weekly emails with our new job postings. They love the fact that we are keeping them informed on what new jobs are out there!
• We are listed on major university sites (Stanford, Caltech, Purdue, etc.) as a premier career resource.
In addition by the end of May we will have a partner page in which we can post a link to your sites if you are interested?
Thanks for your consideration. I hope you will visit our site and consider adding us to your site. Please let me know your thoughts and feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
Best Regards

Hello Maria,

I was notified about your blog from a fellow friend, and I actually had a question for you. Would you happen to know how or where I can get an attendee list?

I am going to list my assistant's personal e-mail so that it will reach him directly. I have notified him that he may be receiving an e-mail soon. His e-mail is .

I would greatly appreciate it if you could inform him as to how to obtain an attendee list.

Thank you for all your help.
