The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Project (TAP) for state and local officials will host a Webinar on Wednesday, April 28, titled Midsize Wind Turbines for the U.S. Community Wind Market. At the Webinar, you will learn about the DOE project to develop midsize wind turbines with capacities ranging from 100 kilowatts to one megawatt. And you will hear why this size seems to fit the budgets for most community wind projects under way in the United States.
Times are EDT - Wyoming is known as the "Energy State," and for good reason. With an abundance of natural resources, Wyoming consistently ranks high in traditional, and now emerging, energy sources. Including wind. Wyoming was ranked by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) as seventh highest state for wind potential capacity in the United States.
Times are EDT - The ASES Small Wind Division bi-monthly webinar series continues on May 6, 2010 (11:30am-1pm PT; 2:30pm-4:00pm ET) with an introduction to the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE). The webinar will be presented by Amanda Vanega.
Times are EDT - Here you will learn about the upcoming TAP Webinar that will present on April 28, 2010, and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Project (TAP) for state and local officials.
Times are EST - Community wind, or locally owned wind power, is a great source of power for rural communities with good wind resources. Numerous studies have shown that revenue from community wind development beats traditional wind models. Wind power development is a win-win-win for rural economic development, national security, and the environment. However, community wind development often faces significant obstacles, including higher costs and limited policy support. Fortunately there are ways to develop community wind despite these and other challenges.
Times are EST - The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) invites you to attend a free webcast on the findings of "Job Impacts of a National Renewable Electricity Standard", a study commissioned by the RES Alliance for Jobs and conducted by Navigant Consulting. The study concludes that a 25% renewable electricity standard (RES) by 2025 will support the creation of an additional 274,000 jobs across the country in a number of renewable energy sectors. The wind industry would see an additional 116,000 jobs.
Time is EST - Please join us Thursday February 11th at 11am EST for a discussion of the myths and facts behind wind turbine syndrome and how scientific research is used to both support and deny the claims made.
Times are EST - This is a free educational webinar hosted by the American Wind Energy Industry. As wind energy continues to grow as a major source of clean, domestic energy, a number of questions have surfaced about how wind power is integrated with the electric power system, in part because of the complex nature of the topic.
Times are EST - Net metering and interconnection policies are essential pieces of a supportive modern state-level regulatory policy framework addressing two important aspects of renewable energy development: whether a customer investing in renewable generation can unlock the full value of his or her investment; and how that customer will interconnect his or her generation system to the distribution grid.
