DACCSW-HFR-OCT-2013-027_thumb3About 75 people attended the luncheon at beautiful Skyline Ballroom featuring Henrik Fogh-Rasmussen as keynote speaker on the topic of: “Why American Companies Must Embrace America” . Fogh-Rasmussen made a strong case for  the American optimism in all aspects of life and how this undeterred belief in America and  in the ability of the individual to rise to the top creates a strong, positive business climate. Fogh-Rasmussen shared a strong belief that America will continue to be a world leader in business as well as policy for the foreseeable future. We thank Henrik for taking the trip to from Springfield to Texas, he indicated he may himself become a Texan one day!

The 4th Texas Offshore Wind Energy Roundtable - TOWER Conference 2013 

On the 27. and 28. of August the 4th Texas Offshore Wind Energy Roundtable - TOWER Conference 2013 was held in Houston.
DACC was present and so was a lot of interesting speakers and participants. On the first day of the conference, there were a lot of interesting dialogs around the difference in perspective on Wind Energy in Europe and the US, dialogs around the shortage of future labor in the industry and the environmental issues.
On the second day of the conference there were a lot of focus on the legal issues around wind energy, and highlight was the Key note from George P. Bush (and yes, they are related) - He is running for Texas Land Commissioner and started a great dialog around water shortage, education etc.
All in all it was two days full of inspiring speakers and dialog around the great opportunities for wind energy in south west.
As a follow up note, we are pleased to see - and will congratulate Vestas on their latest and biggest order since 2010; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/26/vestas-receives-largest-o_n_3997785.html
