Renewables: The Future of Wind Power in the Americas

As wind power continues to grow in importance as a renewable energy source, we pause to examine the capability of regional and national infrastructures to support its continued development. Representatives from a range of multi-modal providers weigh in on the sector’s challenges and opportunities, including:

  • Can existing rail and road infrastructure support longer, larger and heavier components?
  • What changes need to be implemented?
  • What regulatory differences exist between countries such as Brazil or Argentina compared to the U.S.? How do these affect cargo transport?
  • With such vast and varied distances to cover, how to know when, where and whether to choose road or rail?
