Great Lakes Wind Collaborative 2nd Annual Meeting

2009

Milwaukee WI - Change is in the Wind!  Come to the Great Lakes Wind Collaborative 2nd Annual Meeting at We Energies' headquarters in Milwaukee WI.

A briefing on highly anticipated federal guidelines for offshore wind development in the Great Lakes will be featured, among other key topics. An opening presentation by leading energy officials from both the United States and Canada will shed light on what it means for the Great Lakes to serve as a model region for wind energy development and how this contributes to reducing CO2 and combating the effects of climate change. The meeting will also feature:

  • Several offshore case studies
  • Issues associated with transportation of wind turbine components and supplies in the Great Lakes region
  • Transmission and integration of wind power into the grid; and
  • The latest research on avian and wildlife issues, including two case studies

Additionally, the GLWC 2nd Annual Meeting will include updates on past, current, and future wind activities from state and provincial leaders, as well as workgroup discussions about the Collaborative’s activities over the course of its first year of operation and breakout sessions looking into future GLWC work activities.
