The biennial Wind Wildlife Research Meeting hosted by the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative provides an internationally recognized forum for researchers and wind-wildlife stakeholders to hear contributed papers, view research posters, and listen to panels that synthesize the most recent wind power-related wildlife research. Academics, researchers, conservation scientists, consultants, federal and state officials, NGO representatives, and wind industry professionals come together every other year for this unique opportunity.

The American Energy Society is convening a summit on emerging energy technologies suitable to the Upper South/Mid-Appalachia region, with emphasis on potential business development and job creation. The objectives for the Summit are straightforward: strengthen the energy cluster of the area and create a model that can serve as a best practice for other regions. Leaders with expertise in science and engineering, business and industry, capital, and policy will contribute to the summit. Panel discussions will be broadcast as a webcast and the proceedings will be published and distributed as a white paper.
NREL Webinar: An Outlook of the U.S. Electricity Sector as Provided by the 2016 Standard Scenarios
This information was last updated on 11/28/2016
3 p.m. ET
The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory recently released the 2016 Standard Scenarios Report: A U.S. Electricity Sector Outlook and the accompanying Standard Scenarios Scenario Viewer, which provides downloadable state-level results for the scenarios included in the report. Guided by these scenarios results, the report discusses four areas of change in the U.S. electricity sector: power sector decarbonization, renewable energy cost declines and associated growth, abundance of low-cost natural gas, and rapid growth in distributed rooftop photovoltaics. In this webinar, members for the NREL Standard Scenarios team will describe the analytical products in detail, show examples of these products and their uses, and provide an opportunity to ask questions. Register for the webinar.
Four Corners Wind Resource Center Webinar: Understanding the Functions and Benefits of Regional Electricity Markets

1 p.m. ET
Most utilities in the United States participate in organizations that help plan and manage transmission operations and power flows, ensuring that power is available when and where it is needed. These independent system operators or regional transmission organizations improve the reliability of the transmission system and lower the operating cost of the electric system. In the Western Interconnection, outside of California, 38 balancing authorities (typically utilities) operate independently. Evaluation is underway to determine if the benefits that will result from regional cooperation outweigh the costs and whether this change is supported by states.
This 1-hour webinar is a tutorial on the functions of and services provided in an "organized" regional electric market, the benefits of cooperation, and how an organized market can support wind and other renewable in a cost-effective manner. Presenters Amanda Ormond of the Western Grid Group and Johnny Casana of EDP Renewables will provide an overview of the two efforts underway to form regional markets in the West: the Western Regional System Operator and the Mountain West Transmission Group. Collectively, these two efforts could affect eight of the 11 states in the Western Interconnection. Register for the webinar.
