Regional Wind Powering America Meeting: Northwest

Location: Seattle, WA

Contact: Corrie Christol, NREL

Phone: (303) 384-7110

As the 3-year Wind Powering America priority state activities end and similar federal funding for medium- and low-priority states transitions to regional outreach activities, the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind and Water Power Program and Wind Powering America are hosting a series of 1-day meetings at strategic locations around the country. State representatives, Wind Working Group members, and other interested stakeholders are invited to attend and share experiences. Through these events, Wind Powering America staff and participants will identify lingering deployment barriers, prioritize these barriers, and then work in small groups to review successful approaches and discuss potential approaches to address the barriers identified.

The meeting will allow wind stakeholders from each region to meet and discuss approaches to address the most pressing market barriers, learn from experiences in other states, and help build regional collaboration. Wind Powering America will also use the meeting results to help plan the Wind Powering America Annual All-States Summit and future program activities. This meeting is free to attend, but please register so we may plan accordingly. Deadline March 28, 2011

The conference was designed to foster new partnerships between agriculture and the energy industry. The conference was of interest to agriculture organizations, rural utilities and economic development leaders, elected officials and local, state, tribal and federal agencies. Participants heard from farmers and technical experts with direct experience in all the major technologies for producing clean energy on the farm -- from wind power, to biomass using agriculture waste or crops, to geothermal heat, to irrigation and stock watering systems powered by the sun and wind. The conference provided attendees a solid overview of each of the major farm-based energy technologies backed by practical take-home materials. It also featured a trade show representing each of the featured technologies. The exhibits were open to the public and local schools.
