Midsize Wind Turbines for the Community Wind Market

2010

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.

Wyoming – Opportunities Blowing in the Wind

2010

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.

Working with Rural Electric Cooperatives to Promote Community Wind Power

2010

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.

Job Impacts of a National Renewable Electricity Standard

2010

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.

Connecting to the Grid Guide

2010

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.
